I was born and raised in Sumter, South Carolina. I attended R.E. Davis Elementary and graduated from Mayewood High School in 1990. I received my bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from Morris College in 1995 and master's degree from Cambridge College in 2001. I have been teaching for 23 years, 18 years at High Hills Elementary, four years at Mayewood, and this is my first year teaching at R.E. Davis College Preparatory Academy. In my spare time, I like to spend time with family, read, and attend sporting events.
