Welcome to my classroom! I am excited to begin my eleventh year at Powdersville Middle! In addition to teaching 7th grade ELA, I also co-sponsor the PVMS Student Council.
I graduated from Converse College in 1989 with a BA in Accounting and a BA in English. In 2011, I received my MAT in Middle Level Language Arts from Converse College. I have taught ELA for over twenty years and look forward to teaching for many more! I have also been privileged to represent our school as Teacher of the Year in 2015 and 2020.
My husband Joey and I have been married for 32 years and have four sons. Stephen teaches history at PVHS and is one of the football coaches. Ben is a lab assistant for a medical group in Greenville. Mitchell is a Marketing Assistant with the athletic department at Fresno State (yes, that's in California!). Sam is a senior at Clemson University where he is majoring in chemistry. In my spare time I enjoy cooking, reading, watching college football (especially the Clemson Tigers) and spending time with family and friends. We are active members at Easley First Baptist Church where I sing in the adult choir, play in the handbell choir, and serve as a deacon.
I am excited about getting to know each of you! I love teaching at PVMS, and I look forward to another spectacular year.
