Welcome to 5th Grade! We are going to have a wonderful year learning and preparing for the next adventure!
I graduated from Winthrop University and have a Master’s degree from USC, however, I love Clemson! I have been teaching in South Carolina since 1995. I absolutely love 5th grade students! I have been married for over 20 years and have two sons. I love being with friends and family. I also enjoy riding my bicycle, walking, shopping, Clemson football games, being on the river and snow skiing.
