Degrees and Certifications:
Bachelor's Degree: Early Childhood EducationGifted and Talented Endorsement
I graduated from University of South Carolina-Aiken in 2006 with a bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education. I also have a Gifted and Talented Endorsement from USCA. This is my 17th year teaching and I have been in third grade in the same room at Jefferson every year. I have loved every minute of it! I love teaching 3rd grade because there are so many new and exciting things that students learn in 3rd grade such as South Carolina history and multiplication facts. I also love the transition that takes place in 3rd grade from "learning to read" to "reading to learn."
I am a proud Momma to 3 children. Kennedy is in 4th grade and Mark is in 2nd grade both here at Jefferson! My daughter Blythe is a toddler and she can't wait to join us at school one day!
In my spare time, I like to watch Carolina football (GO COCKS!), read, go the movies, exercise, run, drink coffee, go to the beach and spend time with family and friends. I am a member of Stevens Creek Church and I serve at the Augusta Dream Center. If I am not spending time with my kids or driving them to their various extra curricular activities, I am either curled up reading a good book or on a run.
I love: my kids, Jesus, roller coasters, the public library, traveling, chocolate, Starbucks, 90's nostalgia, anything garnet and black, the gym, Tom Petty, summer, red roses, my bookclub, my church, being a cheer/pageant mom and a soccer/basketball/baseball mom and food!
Here at Jefferson, I am the Accelerated Reader Committee chair and I coach the running club.
