         This will be my 10h year teaching at Okatie Elementary.  I have taught 2nd grade for 6 years and 3rd grade for 4 years.  I have made such great memories with all of my students throughout the years and can’t wait to make new ones!  Okatie is great place to be with wonderful teachers, students, and parents!
         I was born and raised in Charleston and moved to the Bluffton area 10 years ago with my family.  I graduated from the College of Charleston with a degree in Elementary and Early Childhood Education. I have one daughter, Sarah, and she & I stay very busy. We love to cheer for the Georgia Bulldogs, swim, read books, and go to the beach! 
      Some of my “Pass Time” favorites include lazy beach days, going out for walks, cheering on our favorite football and baseball teams, looking for shells with my daughter, and traveling to Charleston to visit family and friends.
     I am looking forward to learning and new adventures with my class, building a comfortable and loving community in our classroom, and all the possibilities the new school year holds for us!
