Welcome to First Grade!
I am super excited about teaching first grade at KEES!!! I graduated from USC Aiken with a Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Education in 2009. I have taught Pre-K, Kindergarten, First Grade, and Third Grade at different schools. I was recently named District Teacher of the Year 2015-2016, at Barnwell District 19 in Blackville. This acknowledgement and honor led me to realize that not only did I love teaching, but I also love working with adults. I am currently getting my Master's Degree in Educational Administration through USC Columbia. GO GAMECOCKS!!! I have a goal to become a principal one day, in an effort to help students and teachers set and reach their goals.
There are many things that I like, and like to do. One of my favorite things to do is be outside in nature. I like to work in my yard planting flowers, so that in the spring and summer I have something beautiful to look at. I also love to hunt and fish with my husband and two kids. We always take a summer trip to the North Carolina Mountains to tube and whitewater raft the rivers.
I hope to make this year an amazing learning experience for every student in my class. With the support and cooperation of all parents and students, we will make this a Fabulous First Grade Year!
May the learning and fun begin!
