About Your Teacher
Welcome to fifth grade! This is my ninth year teaching and my seventh year at Ashley River Creative Arts.
Last year, I obtained National Board certification and my Masters plus 30. In 2014-2015, I was proud to represent the Charleston County School District as the Charleston Reading Council's Distinguished Reading Teacher of the Year. During the 2013-2014 school year, I served Ashley River as our school's Teacher of the Year. In 2007, I graduated from the College of Charleston with a degree in Elementary Education. A year later, I graduated from the University of South Carolina with a Masters degree in Language and Literacy.
My goal as a teacher is to engage students in learning through art. I will use a variety of art forms to make learning exciting, relevant, and connected to all subject areas. Teaching through an art form will enable my students to be culturally aware, critical thinkers, and contributors to our world.
In my free time, I enjoy being with my family, especially baby Beau. I also like to travel, read, and relax.
