"Art it not what you see, but what you make others see"  ~Edgar Degas

I truly love teaching at Ashley River Creative Arts Elementary School! This will be my ninth year teaching at Ashley River. I taught third grade for three years and this will be my sixth year teaching first grade. I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Studio Art from the College of Charleston and am a firm believer of the arts-infused curriculum. I also hold an M.A.T. in Early Childhood Education from the College of Charleston.

An interesting fact about me is that I am a former Ashley River student! I currently live in Mt. Pleasant with my husband Sundance. He owns Coastal Cushion and Canvas on Shem Creek. In addition to teaching, I love to paint, paddleboard on Shem Creek and do yoga!
