I was born and raised in South Carolina and attended South Carolina public schools. I graduated from Clemson University with a major in secondary education (natural sciences). This year I will begin my 39th year of teaching middle school. This is my 29th year at Divine Redeemer School. Both of my children, Kelley and Michael attended Divine Redeemer. I enjoy spending time with my children and my three grandchildren Daphne, Lucy, and Calvin. I also enjoy Clemson football and the outdoors.
