This is my 20th year teaching and my 15th year teaching at Furman Middle School. I have taught 6th, 7th, and 8th grade science. Currently teaching 7th grade science. I have a Bachelor of Education (B.Ed.) in Elementary Education and Teaching from Coastal Carolina University; Master's Education in Curriculum and Instruction/Technology Integration from Lesley University; and M.S. in Education Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment from Walden University. I am passionate about my students that I teach. I love making connections and exciting the students with the content. Being flexible and explaining why something is important makes better sense in helping the students to connect.
