    Teaching Experience:
     This will be my 23rd year of teaching, and I love it more with each passing class. I graduated from the Aiken campus of  the University of South Carolina in 1993 with a degree in Elementary Education. I am also certified in Art Education. In 2013, I earned my Master's degree in Elementary Education from William Carey University. My teaching experiences include 6th and 8th grade Math and Language Arts, Art (3-5), and third grade Language Arts.
    Family Life:
    Bill and I moved our family to Petal in 2006. We have 3 children, a daughter-in-law, and our first granddaughter. Our children graduated from Petal High School in 2012, 2014, and 2017. Sadie, our fur baby still lives with us. We love living in Petal and the sense of community we found here. 
    I look forward to working with you and teaching your child. Please feel free to contact me by e-mail or phone. The school number is 601-554-7244.
