I am one of the newest SPED Resource Teachers here at Dubose Middle School. My role is to assist our general education teachers in providing additional support to our students to ensure their success. This is my third official year teaching SPED, and my second official year teaching SPED resource, and my 1st year teaching here in DD2! Very excited!

        As a Colleton County native, I graduated from Colleton County High School in 2010, and went on to earn my B.S. in Elementary Education & Special Education from Grand Canyon University in Phoenix, AZ. A few years later after working within the classroom and developing a deeper passion for working with children, I knew that I wanted to do this for the rest of my life, but also wanted to learn more and effective ways to serve our students, I decided to return to Grand Canyon University to earn my M.A. in Instruction & Curriculum.

      Outside of the classroom, I am a mom of two beautiful children ages 9 & 11 and a fiancé’. I have an extroverted personality and love to mix and mingle with others. Some of my hobbies include spending time outdoors, from planting flowers, hunting, to enjoying a nice sunset on the beach; writing music and playing the guitar, theatre and my all-time favorite shopping! To know me is to love me. I am very excited to be a part of the WildCat Family and am looking forward to an awesome 2019-2020 school year!

When checking PowerSchool, please remember:

  •  Checking PowerSchool regularly is the best way to stay informed about how you are doing in class and on top of your grades. 

    • You can click on the grade for language arts, and PowerSchool will display the assignments included in that grade.  
    • View details to see a description or a hyperlink to the document. 
    • If an assignment is marked “--” by the grade, the teacher has not yet entered the grade.  
    • If the assignment was not turned in (marked “M” for missing, "L" for late, and “0” for no grade earned), you can turn it in to the Late Tray for up to a week after the due date. If you were absent when it was originally due, please indicate it on the sheet. 
    • Assignments cannot be turned in more than a week after the due date. 
    • If an assignment is turned in late, please understand that it will be a few days (usually until the following Friday) before the grade will be updated.
    • Classwork will not be accepted late under any circumstances. If I accidentally give a student a 0 for classwork and they were absent from class, please email me or speak to me in class and I will fix the grade.
