"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 and received my license to teach gifted learners. I began teaching at North Windy Ridge in August, 2013 as an AIG Specialist. 5th and 6th graders are the BEST!
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!
