I am so excited to be a part of Pelion Middle’s 6th grade team! I graduated from UMUC with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English in 2012. I began teaching 6th grade ELA at Pelion Middle in the fall of 2020. I have a real passion for education and love that I get to be in the classroom everyday. I am married to my best friend, Joshua, and we have three children: Maddie, Nathan, and Kaleb. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, reading a good book, and traveling the world. I have been to several countries and a large number of the United States. I have lived all over the place including Germany, Alaska and Colorado, but South Carolina has always been home! I look forward to having an exciting and productive year.
