This is my 10th year of teaching, and my 1st year at Brookside Elementary. Before Brookside, I taught for ten years at Lutheran Chapel Preschool and one year at Goucher Elementary. I have taught preschool and fourth grade. I have loved all of them! I live in the Belmont area where I went to South Point High School, I have two horses named Dixie and Sophie as well as a dog named Daisy Mae. I love to sing, watch movies, cheer for Clemson TIgers football in the fall and  have Game Nights with friends and family. I am active in my church, CrossFix Ministries in Belmont. I can’t wait to begin this First Grade adventure with your child!
