About the Teacher
     Welcome to 3E!  This is my fifteenth year at OGCS and my twelfth year as a third grade teacher.  I attended Francis Marion University where I completed my student teaching in the third grade and graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree with a major in Elementary Education.  

     Third grade was my favorite grade in elementary school because I loved my th
ird grade teacher!  She always made me feel special and made learning fun.  It was during this year that I decided I wanted to become a school teacher.  I try to emulate this same behavior with my students now and believe that the person who does the work, does the learning.  

I enjoy spending free time with my family.  I have a 10-year-old daughter who attends 5th grade here at "The Grove."  We do a lot together as a family either at home, around Charleston, or touring new places out of state.  We also enjoy riding roller coasters, so we visit various amusement parks throughout the year.  I also enjoy going to the beach and watching my favorite team - the Clemson Tigers - play football!

     I absolutely 
LOVE teaching third grade!  I love this age group, the team of teachers that I work with, and the SC Standards at this level, especially Social Studies in which we learn about our great state.  I LOVE my job at Orange Grove where we are "Shooting for the Stars" because we are truly one, large family working together to educate today's youth.
