    This year I begin my 27th year of teaching!  Wow, it's hard to believe it's been that long.  I have been at  Berry Shoals Intermediate School since 2002.  Prior to that, I was a third grade teacher at Wellford Elementary and Curriculum Facilitator at Duncan Elementary. Before coming to District Five, I was employed by the School District of Greenville County as a math teacher at Greer Middle School.  I am currently an adjunct professor at Converse College where I teach a graduate course for teachers who want to earn their certification in Gifted and Talented Instruction.
     
    My husband, Earl, and I reside in Duncan with our many cats and dogs, Montgomery Gentry, Hachi and Maggie.  We are car enthusiasts and motorcyclists. I enjoy Nascar, football, gardening  and country music.  
     
    It is my philosophy that learning should be an active, fun experience.  It has become my passion in life to help my students make connections and truly understand the mathematics around them.  I am very excited about this year and look forward to learning and growing together.
