Attention: Due to the unprecedented spread of the Coronavirus in our state all schools have been closed for the time being. However, we are still providing review and enrichment activities during this crisis via work packets. Students will be expected to complete the work packets while they are at home. If you do not have internet access at home, parents may come to the school to pick up the work packets for their students on designated pick-up days. If you have internet access, you will find a parent letter, signature pages, and the work packets for your child on the Class Handouts page of this website. I will have "office hours" each M-F from 10:00-11:00am and 2:00-3:00pm via email at the address below. If your student does not remember their username and password, please email me and I will send it to you. I will respond to all emails as quickly as possible. I have enclosed the username and password in the hard copy packets for those that prefer to pick the packets up at school. Be safe, and I look forward to seeing you all soon.

Personal Information:

I'm one of those Yankees who came down South for a visit and liked it so much I stayed! I'm originally from Rochester, New York, but have called Summerville my home for the past 31 years. I don't miss the snowy winters of New York- I'm very happy to be in South Carolina where it's nice and warm most of the year.  In my free time I enjoy camping with my family, listening to prog rock bands, geocaching, and reading science  fiction and mystery novels. My favorite place to grab a quick meal in Summerville is Ye Ole Fashion Ice Cream Shoppe - they have the best French fries in town!

I began my teaching career in Charleston County, but made the switch to Dorchester District 2 in 1999. This is my twenty-first year teaching at Gregg Middle School, and I'm very lucky to work with such a dedicated group of teachers and students! I can be reached by calling GMS at 871-3150, or through my email:
