• I am so excited to start my third year as a Mustang! 

    My own educational background is eclectic:  I grew up in Dover, Delaware, but fortunately ended up down here at Clemson University, where I earned my B.A. in Secondary Education/English.  My M.A. (with the same focus as my B.A.) was earned at Ohio State many years ago, while I substitute taught in the Columbus City Schools.  This makes me a Tiger and a Buckeye, but my heart is truly orange 99% of the time.  My youngest child moved to Ohio this summer to get his Master's degree at Youngstown State University, so part of my heart is back in Ohio again.

    My husband and I raised three children in Simpsonville, two girls and one boy. Our daughters have given us three little grandchildren: Jack, Carter, and Eliza. Our two dogs are beloved (by me, at least) fixtures in our now empty nest; they're good company, never sassy or grumpy. We also have an ancient cat, who still proudly keeps the yard rodent-free.

    Please don't hesitate to contact me directly with any concerns.  Email is best, but if you need to chat, send a note in with your child or leave me a message, and I will call you during my planning period or after school.  If you're a virtual student or parent, please know I will return your emails or calls after school hours or during my planning period.
