I am a University of South Carolina graduate in my ninth year of teaching. My first four years were at Ballentine Elementary School in Irmo, SC. I am now teaching Language Arts (specifically Reading Intervention) at CrossRoads Intermediate School in Columbia, SC. CrossRoads hosts sixth graders from 10 of the 12 elementary schools in our district! I love every single thing about my school, my job, my students, and my coworkers. I am in the middle of a blessed, blessed life and career!
I was honored to receive Teacher of the Year for the 2011-2012 school year, and I was even more honored to be named a top three Honor Roll Teacher of the Year for District 5 of Lexington and Richland Counties. The past seven years have been so exciting, and I love that I get to start a new year each August ready to learn, love, and try something new!
