I started my teaching career after graduating from Claflin University, with a bachelors degree in Elementary Education.  I continued my education at South Carolina State University where I received a masters degree in Special Education (LD).  I have done further studies at various institutions in South Carolina.


I have been teaching at Whittaker Elementary School for the past 13 years.  I have been teaching for 27 years in various grades.


I am a native of Orangeburg, SC.  I have a wonderful husband and two lovely daughters. I love to read, travel, motivate young people, and help others in need.  My passion is teaching. My love for children and what's important to them is the foundation for what I teach and how I teach. I believe that the hands-on approach to learning is the best way for children to learn. The more experiences they have, the more they will learn. The more they learn the more curious and enthusiastic they are about learning!
