I am a native South Carolinian who grew up in Greenville, South Carolina.  I received my BA at Furman University.  I attended the University of Sydney in Australia and obtained my Masters in Education with a Literature, Literacy, and Drama focus.  I began working on my second masters degree at Furman University in Middle Level Social Studies.  I taught 8th grade English Language Arts in both Greenville and Pickens County.   I have worked with the National Middle Association on teaming in the Middle School.  I worked on several committees to integrate social studies and ELA curriculums.  I began teaching at MGM in 2013.  I am currently teaching 8th grade English. My husband, Jerry, and I moved to Lexington in 2005 when he  began a new job.  Our daughter was born in 2007 and attends MGES.  My husband and I both love sports and travel.  I coached volleyball at Lexington Middle and now coach for Intense Volleyball, a juniors volleyball club in the Lexington area.  We are huge Cleveland Browns fans and spend Sunday watching the NFL.  I have traveled to Europe, Russia, Mexico, and Australia.  I love to share my experiences with my students and encourage their love of travel.  I am an avid reader and enjoy talking with students about the books they read.
