I am so excited to have you in my class. We are going to have a great year! This will be my twelfth year at Cowpens Elementary. I previously taught 5th grade Language Arts and Social Studies in District Five for four years. Before teaching 5th grade I taught REACH and ROAR to 4th, 5th, and 6th grade students. I attended District Three schools, and I am excited about teaching where I learned so much as a student. I received my college education from USC-Spartanburg. I have been married for eighteen years to Todd. I have two children. Thad is twelve years old and Lydia Grace is eight. They both have brought such joy to my life. I enjoy snow skiing, reading, and spending time with my family.
