Degrees and Certifications:
I began my career in education in 1985 as a graduate from the University of South Carolina (Go Gamecocks!) I am a native South Carolinian who just so happened to meet my future husband, a native son of Georgia, as I earned a degree in Elementary Education. We are the proud parents of four awesome children - DJ, Jackie, Breanna, and Donovan. I began teaching in South Carolina but due to my husband’s military career, I've also lived and taught in Japan, Italy, and Georgia. Since earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in Education from the University of South Carolina, through the years I have also earned a Master of Education degree in Counseling and Psychology from Troy State University and an Education Specialist degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Cambridge College. This is the beginning of my 34th year teaching and my 24th year working for the Richmond County School System.
