My Motto:
"All Children Can Learn"


I am married to Ray and we have 2 children.  Connor (21) attends Francis Marion and Raenah (17) is attends Marlboro County High School. I have a Bachelor of Science and Master's degree in Early Childhood Education. I will receive my Administrative License in April of this year. I am Nationally Certified as an Early Childhood Generalist. This is my 29th year teaching school of which 26 years have been in Pre-K.  I have also taught 3rd and 4th grade. My entire teaching career has been here in Marlboro County. Pre-K is the grade that I have enjoyed the most. I have a wonderful teaching partner, Ms. Outlaw. I love to see the children's eyes light up when they learn something new. I love MEMS and my colleagues. Outside of school I enjoy reading, spending time with my family, and finding new and inventive  activities to use in my classroom.
