I am a 1994 graduate of St. George High school and a 1998 graduate of Winthrop University where I received a bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education. I later added Elementary Education to my certification and received a master’s degree from Claflin University in Educational Studies with an emphasis in Teacher Leadership. In 2016, I received my Educational Specialist Degree in Educational Leadership from Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia. I have received additional endorsements in the Gifted and Talented education and elementary administration. I am entering my 25th year of education and my 3rd year as an Instructional Coach.
