"My favorite school supply is my laptop computer for completion of many projects."
I am a 2nd Grade teacher in Columbia, SC, and nationally board certified in early/middle childhood literacy. I have been teaching for fourteen years. I was recently a 2017 Horace Mann Award for Teaching Excellence recipient, one of five educators from across the country to receive the annual honor. The award honors educators for their diligence and dedication to students, colleagues, and the community. My drive and passion for advancing excellence and equity for every student, supporting educators, and elevating the teaching profession is reflective in my work as an educator.
