It has been a great pleasure to be a part of the Blue Ridge Middle Community for the past nine years. Prior to coming to BRMS I have served in education in the following positions: Science Teacher at Sevier Middle, Curator of Life Science at Roper Mountain Science Center, Instructional Coach at Berea Middle, and District Middle School Coordinator for The School District of Pickens County. My degrees are from Clemson and Furman Universities. My husband and I enjoy spending time with family, traveling, reading, skiing, and watching Clemson football! Go Tigers – Blue Ridge and Clemson!
Blue Ridge Middle has greeted me with welcoming arms. I am so excited to be a part of the Blue Ridge Middle School family. I currently serve as the 7th grade, 8th grade and Special Education Assistant Principal here at Blue Ridge Middle.
My husband (Curtis) and I have three beautiful children, Sabrea, C. Dorian, and Danielle
I have attended both South Carolina State University and Furman University. I have taught for over seven years at the middle school level and spent three in early childhood. This is my seventh year in administration and I am loving it.
This is my 21st year in education spread across the state of South Carolina from the coast in the Charleston area where I subbed and did my student teaching, to the Gateway to the Low-country in Barnwell, SC, to the largest school district in South Carolina representing much of the upstate in Greenville. I have been involved in the instruction or the professional development of almost every age group in public education from Elementary School (K-7) Music, to Assistant High School Band Director (8-12). I have coordinated a 6th– 8th grade Gifted and Talented Program, taught a 6th grade Social Studies Class and worked for a number of years as the Instructional Coach in a middle school setting. I have my undergraduate history degree from the University of South Carolina, my MAT from The Citadel, my National Board Certification in Adolescent Social Studies, my Administrative Degree in K-12 Administration through Greenville and Clemson, and I am currently working on my Ed.D. in Curriculum and Instruction through the University of South Carolina. I am a three-time school "Teacher of the Year" and a one-time District "Teacher of the Year". I am looking forward to our time together and cannot wait to see the great things that are in store for us.
I have been teaching 7th grade English language arts at Blue Ridge Middle School since 2005. This year I took on a new challenge, the job of Instructional Coach. Prior to coming to BRMS I taught at Gateway Elementary School, Northwest Middle School, and Berea Middle School. I have degrees from Clemson University and Southern Wesleyan University. In my free time I’ll be found either at my family’s barn with our horses, at a Clemson football game, at the beach, or camping with my family.
