All About Me

Hello! Welcome to my webpage! This is my 10th year at Congaree Elementary. I have been teaching for 27 years now. I am an academic support teacher (resource teacher). I am so excited about this school year. I was born and raised in Sumter, SC. After college, I moved to Columbia, SC. I have lived her for 25 years now. I have two children, four dogs, two cats, and fifteen chickens. My favorite things to do are going to the beach, reading a good book, spending quality time with my family, and watching football.
