Welcome to our classroom at Hilton Head Island School for the Creative Arts. I am delighted to have the opportunity to teach this wonderful class of fourth graders.

My career in elementary education has been exciting and challenging. I have had the privilege of teaching many students from first grade all the way to fifth. I don't know that I have a favorite grade to teach, but I sure enjoy teaching fourth grade students. I attended Salem College in Winston-Salem with the goal of studying vocal performance and the dream of singing at the Metropolitan Opera House. I completed my B.A. in History at Georgia State University (1996). I completed my M.A. in Elementary Education at Gardner-Webb University (2007) in Boiling Springs, NC. I had the good fortune to complete my student teaching and teach for ten years with amazing mentor teachers and administrators at Elizabeth Elementary School/Shelby Intermediate School in Shelby, NC. 

My family relocated to South Carolina where I found a terrific educational and professional fit. I continue on the path of life-long learning as a Doctoral candidate at the University of South Carolina. I am conducting research on the effects of experiential, outdoor education in science instruction. 

Most of my classroom stories involve my favorite environmental scientist and welder, Jack (HHIHS graduate) and world traveler Virginia (11th grade at Czech Republic HS). Wilbur is our silly pug who sings opera and show tunes with me. My favorite activities include mountain biking, spin and body pump classes and walking with Wilbur. I want to hike the Appalachian Trail with my kids. My weakness is Peanut M&M's and murder mystery books. Michael Connelly is the best thriller writer. Ever.
