I graduated from USC Upstate and have a Bachelor’s of Arts in Sociology, a Bachelors of Arts Degree In Elementary Education from Converse College and a Masters In Middle Level Science Education which I also received from Converse College. I as well as my husband grew up in Spartanburg and am proud to call it my home where we are raising our two boys. Although I have only been at Mary H.

I am excited about teaching and getting to know my new students in a grade that I love teaching, and feel blessed to have the opportunity to do so.
