I have spent 33 years working in Dorchester IV and am starting my second year at Williams Memorial Elementary School, where I serve as the Assistant Principal.

Prior to coming to Williams Memorial Elementary School, I was the Assistant Principal, a TAP Evaluator, and the Textbook Coordinator at Harleyville-Ridgeville Middle School (2012-2016); the Curriculum Specialist, textbook coordinator, and Site Coordinator for Making Middle Grades Work at St. George Middle School (2010-2012); the Curriculum Specialist (2007-2010), the Director of the Freshman Academy (2008-2010), and the English Departmental Chairperson (2000-2007) at Woodland High School. I began my eductional career teaching second and third grades at St. George Elementary School (1984-1994) and later transitioned to high school to teach Reading/English at St. George High School (1994-1999) and Woodland High School (1999-2007).

I received my Bachelors degree from the University of South Carolina (go Cocks!) in Early Childhood Education, my Masters in Elementary Education from South Carolina State University, my Masters +30 in Reading from the College of Charleston, and completed the program for certification in Educational Leadership at The Citadel. I am certified in the areas of Early Childhood, Elementary Education, and Elementary Principal and Elementary Supervisor.

I am originally from Harleyville but have lived in St. George for the last 30+ years.  I am looking forward to the upcoming year and the challenges it will bring!
