My Motto:
"All Children Can Learn"


My husband, Ray and I have been married 31 years. We have 2 amazing children.  Connor (24) is in the Army and Raenah (20) is in the nursing program at NETC. I have a Bachelor of Science and Master's degree in Early Childhood Education.  I am nationally certified as an Early Childhood Generalist (NBCT). I received my Administrative License in 2017. This is my 34th year teaching school of which 31 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, decorating, and finding new and inventive activities to use in my classroom.
