This is my 25th year of teaching, and the years (and students) have taught me as much as I have taught them. Each year is different and each student is unique. I teach 5th grade social studies. I have my masters in Divergent Learners and my National Boards in Early Adolescent Social Studies. I was born and raised in South Carolina, and have taught in all types of school districts - very, rural and struggling economy with little parental support to strong economic district with involved parents and volunteers, and I have taught in all types of classrooms -- self contained, departmentalized, looping, and gender based. I am married and between us we share five children and three grandchildren. In my limited free time, I enjoy reading nonfiction and historical books and stories and even choose some to share with my students. My husband and i enjoy walking, and I am attempting yoga. We both LOVE sports -- watching college football and baseball -- GAMECOCKS and professional baseball -- YANKEES. We enjoy traveling to various states and historical sites in America, as well as traveling to the different college stadiums and ballparks.
