Blessed to be a good ole’ southern country girl, home for me is Mcconnells, SC. Accustomed to feeding chickens, hanging clothes outside to dry, and aiding with the yearly gardening duties, hardwork comes natural. I grew up snacking on cucumbers, playing outside, and attending church regularly. As an adult, I still snack on cucumbers, enjoy outside activities, and attend church regularly. Enough about the old days........ 

Upon graduating high school, I attended Charleston Southern University. In 2012, I graduated summa cum laude with a degree in Elementary Education.  Shortly after, I began teaching third grade at Williams Memorial Elementary School. During my time there, I was named Rookie Teacher of the Year as well as Teacher of the Year. In conjunction with teaching, I obtained my Master’s degree in Elementary Administration and now here I am!
