Subjects Taught
First Grade


I earned my Bachelor's of Science in Early Childhood Education and my Master's degree in Educational Leadership both at Columbus State University in Columbus, Georgia. 


I have spent the past 13 years teaching in Muscogee County. I taught third grade for 11 years and fourth grade for 2 years. I'm excited to be teaching first grade in Sumter County for my third year!


I have 4 wonderful children who are all grown up! My 2 sons are 31 & 30 and my 2 daughters are 28 & 25 years old! I recently remarried and moved to Sumter County with my husband which brings me to teaching first grade at Sumter County Primary School! I am very excited to be here and anxious to see what this school year will bring for my new students and me!
