Hi! I am serving as the Assistant Principal at Reeves. I have been teaching since 2000 and have taught math, social studies and science. I received my bachelor's degree in Retail Management from the University of South Carolina, followed by a master's degree in Elementary Education from the College of Charleston and a master's degree in Elementary Administration from the University of South Carolina. I spent 8 years as an Instructional Technology Specialist where I trained teachers on new and existing programs and assisted with ideas for using technology in the classroom. I also helped analyze data for the school and assisted with technology issues that may arise. During the 2020-2021 school year I was the Assistant Principal Intern. My goal is to help teachers prepare students to become 21st Century learners by providing opportunities for students to maximize their strengths to analyze, discover and learn in an increasing global and digital world. Please feel free to contact me with any questions, concerns, or comments you may have. You can email me at or call the school at (843) 695-2450.
