I have been very happily married for the past 22 years to my high school sweetheart, Jim. We have 2 girls, Ashley, who is a senior, and Rebecca, who is a 7th grader.  My Suburban is called "the bus" because I haul them back and forth to dance, cheerleading, etc.  I live on a farm with 4 horses, 9 bantam chickens, 32 cows, 3 dogs, and 2 cats.  I live in a small community near North, SC..  We are big "Gamecock" fans. 

Educationally speaking, I have had a wonderful experience working with the top notch (A) staff at Whittaker Elementary.    Our students take great pride in being a "Wildcat" as do I.  The reason our school is so successful is directly related to the efforts put forth by our staff, students, and parents.  Together, we will continue the tradition of excellence!
