"Do more than belong: participate. Do more than care: help. Do more than believe: practice. Do more than be fair: be kind. Do more than dream: work.” William Arthur Ward
After graduating from Francis Marion University in 1993 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education, I have taught 4th, 5th, and 6th grades. In December, 2012, I completed AIG graduate courses at Mars Hill University, received my license to teach gifted learners, and began teaching at North Windy Ridge in August, 2013, as an AIG Specialist.
As of 2014, I have been teaching 20 years. Rick, my husband, recently retired after 36 years of public service. He loved being a teacher, coach, and A.D. We have three children, two Labrador Retrievers, and a 17 year old kitty. I enjoy art, music, modern dance, and on most sunny days, you will find me in my yard. Yes, I am a gardening freak. I know Rick loves me, but we joke that it is mostly because I like to mow grass!
