I am so excited to have you in my class. We are going to have a great year! This will be my thirteenth year at Cowpens Elementary. I previously taught 5th grade Language Arts and Social Studies in District Five for four years. Before teaching 5th grade I taught REACH and ROAR to 4th, 5th, and 6th grade students. I attended District Three schools, and I am excited about teaching where I learned so much as a student. I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education from USC-Spartanburg. In December of 2020 I graduated with my Master’s Degree in Applied Learning and Instruction with a concentration in Literacy. I have been married for twenty years to Todd. I have two children. Thad is in 8th grade at Clifdale Middle and Lydia Grace is in 4th grade at Cowpens Elementary. They both have brought such joy to my life. I enjoy snow skiing, reading, and spending time with my family.
