Subjects Taught


I received my AB from Erskine College in 1982.  I majored in Early Childhood and minored in Special Ed. I received my M.Ed. in Elementary Ed. from Clemson University in 1987. I later earned my 30+ hours from various institutes.


I began my teaching career in 1982 in Mullins, SC where I taught an Early Childhood Class (aka Pre-Kindergarten) for three years.  I returned home to Newberry in 1985 and taught resource at Silverstreet Middle School for one year.  In 1986 I returned to my first love, Pre-kindergarten and have been there ever since. From 1986 to 2004 I was at Speers Street Elementary and in the fall of 2004 moved to the new Gallman.  All total I have 35 years of teaching experience.


I was born in Newberry, SC.  My husband is from Prosperity, SC.  We have two daughters, Maria and Joanna.  Maria is married and living in Greenville, SC where she is beginning her teaching career... as a Pre-Kindergarten teacher!  Joanna attends PTC where she is studying photography.  She also works part-time at Long's Pharmacy.
