Welcome to my NWR homepage! I have hit the highlight of my career working at NWR as your child's AIG Specialist. Every step in my professional life has offered incredibly positive experiences and I have loved each school and my students for many reasons, but NWR feels like home and I am with my people. 5th and 6th graders are such bundles of complex energy, just walking into this building, listening to their conversations, makes me smile and brings such joy into my life. You can tell I love a challenge!
How did I get here? After graduating from Francis Marion University in 1993 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education, I taught 4th, 5th, and 6th grades in the regular classroom. In August of 2013, after completing graduate coursework at Mars Hill University, I began teaching gifted learners at North Windy Ridge as an AIG Specialist.
Life outside of NWR includes my husband, three adult children, a daughter-in-law, two silly and energetic labrador retrievers, and a 17 year old cat. I enjoy gardening, architecture, art, and have recently rekindled my love of swimming.
Please contact me if you have any concerns, large or small, and hopefully I will be able to provide guidance and solutions. firstname.lastname@example.org
