Subjects Taught
8th Grade ELA


I hold a B.A.in Education and an M.A. in Mass Communications, both from the University of South Carolina.  I loved my college experiences and I think I could have been a "perpetual" student.


This is my ninth wonderful year at GMS!  I have a variety of teaching experiences under my belt, from middle school to the college level.  Some of the subjects I have taught during my career range from language arts to writing and reading to French.  However, I truly love teaching my eighth graders! 


A true Carolina girl, I am a native of Marlboro County.  The lowcountry has been my home for most of my adult life, so I guess you could say "I have sand between my toes." When I am not teaching or preparing for my students, I enjoy trying out new recipes, reading a good book, and spending time with my husband and dog.  Though I am really a homebody at heart, every once in a while I like to travel and explore different places. I especially love a good pizza and am an extreme "chocoholic".
