About the Teacher
I have been a first or second grade teacher for the past forty-two years. I love teaching! I graduated from Augusta College in 1974 with a Bachelor of Music in Education Degree and began teaching that same year at Byrd Elementary School. I received my Master of Education Degree in Reading from the University of South Carolina in 1979. I taught first grade at Byrd Elementary for fourteen years until I moved to Aiken Elementary School in 1987 where I finished my public education career in second grade in 2009. I was a substitute teacher at Mead Hall School from 2010-2012. I joined the Mead Hall Faculty at the beginning of the 2012-2013 school year as a first grade teacher and followed those students to second grade where I remain today. I enjoy reading, cooking, vacationing at the beach and mountains, church activities, and spending time with my wonderful family.
