After graduating from James F. Byrnes High School, I completed my Bachelor of Science in Secondary Education/Biology from the University of South Carolina-Spartanburg and my Master of Education in Gifted Education from Converse College. This is my 14th year teaching and my fifth year teaching Challenge in Greenville County. I have taught in similar pull-out model GT programs in Kershaw County and Florence School District One and at a GT magnet school in Wake County, NC. My husband, Michael, and I have been married for 19 years, and we have two children and a miniature Labradoodle named Hazel. I am looking forward to a fun year of learning together!
