Degrees and Certifications:
I have lived in the Myrtle Beach area since 1995. I am married with 2 children. My son attends The Academy for Arts, Science, and Technology, and my daughter attends Ocean Bay Middle School. I enjoy going to the beach, shopping, dining out with my husband, and spending lots of time with my children. I have 23 years of teaching experience.
I am a graduate of the College of Charleston, with a degree in Elementary and Early Childhood Education. I received my Master’s degree from Coastal Carolina University in Early Childhood Education. I have previously taught kindergarten, first grade, and Reading Recovery. I served as a Curriculum Specialist at another elementary school. For four years I was the school district’s Coordinator for Early Childhood Education and Parenting. In this position, I provided training and support for our district’s 64 Child Development teachers. In 2013-14 I was selected at the Ocean Bay Elementary Teacher of the Year and was a Top 5 Finalist for our district. I remain very appreciative of that honor.
