I grew up in a military family, so I have lived in many different places. My parents moved to Charleston after my Dad retired from the Air Force. My Mom's family is from here. I have a brother who also lives here with his family.
I graduated from the College of Charleston with a degree in Elementary Education in December of 2003. I have been teaching for over 12 years. My husband was in the Navy in Jacksonville, FL and I began teaching there after we got married. I taught second grade there and then moved to a private school where I taught middle school. My husband got out of the Navy and we moved here to Charleston. I previously taught in CCSD at Lambs Elementary in North Charleston for five years. I'm going into my sixth year at Orange Grove, where I have taught third grade and this is my second year in fourth grade. This school has spoiled me with its wonderful staff and families. I am very excited about working with the students and parents again this year!
My husband and I have a little boy, Clark, who is 7 years-old. We have a little girl, Mary Alice, who turned 3 this past May. We enjoy traveling together as a family and spending time outside.
