• I am excited to serve as the RCTCM Instructional Specialist for the 2023-2024 school year.  My ultimate goal is to ensure that all building educators are supported in their instructional and professional learning needs. I am a graduate of Augusta State University where I majored in Biology. Go, Jags! I also hold my master's degree from Argosy University. This begins my 15th year with the Richmond County School System, where I taught HS Science, held various leadership assignments, and was awarded the honor of being a 2017 Star Teacher and a 2018 Teacher of the Year recipient. I have a passion for partnering with instructors in the areas of streamlining the usage of technology and developing engaging student-centered classroom lessons through professional development, co-teaching, and modeling.
