Degrees and Certifications:
The 2018-19 school year will be my eighth at DuBose Middle.
I grew up in Summerville and attended the public schools of Dorchester District Two, so many of my former principals and teachers still work in the district.
I have been married for 18 years to Guy Stillinger, and we have two children together: our son, Jess, who is a senior at SHS, and our daughter, Kate, who is a 7th-grader at DMS. I also have two “bonus” daughters. They have been “my” daughters since they were babies, and I adore them. Carrie is in nursing school, and Hayden is pursuing a career in dental hygiene.
When I first graduated from Columbia College, I became a news and sports writer, copy editor, and layout designer for a daily newspaper. I worked at the paper for close to 10 years and loved it!
After I had children, I became a stay-at-home mom until my youngest was in preschool. I then began substitute teaching in DD2. To my surprise, I loved working with middle schoolers, so here I am!
