Welcome Freshman! I am excited to join Midland Valley High School as a Mustang for the 2019-2020 school year. I just moved to Aiken County with my family from Las Vegas, Nevada. This will be my 14th year teaching English Language Arts. I love the power of the written word and how the simple act of opening a book can take you on any adventure or allow you to escape to any place your heart desires.
A few things about me...I have a 4 year old son who is smart and sassy. He keeps me busy. I am an avid hockey fan. I may be in Carolina country now, but I will always bleed the gold and black of the Vegas Golden Knights. I coached basketball for many years and still get chills when I hear the sounds of sneakers on the gym floor and the whistle of the referee. I have taught myself photography and love to capture the memories of my family and the beauty that surrounds us. The beach is my happy place. I love the sand between my toes and the waves crashing around me.
I believe in hard work and the power of the word, "yet." We have a lot to learn this year and when you walk into my classroom, we are a family.
