My Professional Passions & Strengths
- I believe it is important to connect with students and get to know each one a personal level. Each child is different and I strive to get to know their individual strengths.
- I enjoy incorporating technology and using projects to encourage collaboration among students. I also integrate literacy across all content areas.
- I believe all children have the ability to learn. Their abilities vary, and must be nurtured and supported every day. When given this support, children are given the power to control their future.
My Personal Passions
I am passionate about my family! I have been married to my husband Neil for 24 years. We have two amazing daughters. Maddie is 18 years old and Karlie is 16 years old. They are very active in sports and keep us very busy. We love being outdoors and we love our Clemson Tigers! I have several nieces and nephews, as well as, great nieces and nephews that I love to spoil! I am very blessed!
