I am so excited to be working with the EAGLE Program again this year. I am entering my 22nd year of teaching, and this year I will be working with 3rd and 5th grade EAGLE students. I attended the University of South Carolina where I received my undergraduate as well as my graduate degree. Go Gamecocks! I also have the gifted and talented endorsement. I am married and I have 2 boys, a tenth grader and a sixth grader. My hobbies include reading, walking, attending Gamecock sporting events, and going to the beach. I am looking forward to a wonderful year at Midway.

As I start my 17th year as a teacher in Lexington One I will be beginning a new position. After 8 years at Midway in the classroom I will become one of our two Eagles teachers. This will be a great new challenge as I work with our 3rd through 5th grade gifted and talented students. When I am not teaching I enjoy spending time with my husband, Dave, who works in Columbia, and my two boys, Anderson and Cannon, that also attend MES. They love to play outside and make big messes, but they are both super sweet and enjoy doing things with our family. I'm excited for another great year with my MES family!
