Welcome to 3rd grade at Gallman Elementary!
This will be my first year teaching 3rd grade and my first year at Gallman Elementary. Before becoming a Gallman Gator, I taught 1st grade at Saluda Primary.
I was born and raised in Newberry County and am happy to call Newberry my home. After getting married my husband and I moved to Laurens County where he served as a pastor. After returning to Newberry I worked for Newberry College, where I also earned my Bachelor of Science degree in Early Childhood Education. I consider myself a lifetime learner and am now pursuing my Master's in English as a Second Language and Bilingual Education. 
My husband is the Founder and Pastor of Cross Point Church, here in Newberry County. We have three children and three grandchildren. Our oldest daughter is the Director of the Occupational Therapy Assistant program at Piedmont Technical College. Our son is a Newberry County Sheriff Deputy and is pursuing his master’s degree in Criminal Justice. Our youngest daughter is currently pursuing her master’s degree in School Counseling.
I look forward to a great first year of being a Gallman Gator and thank you for sharing your precious children with me!
