           Welcome to the "West Pelzer Wilderness!"  I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you and your child into our classroom.  I have been teaching kindergarten for twenty-five years.  Each day is a fun and new adventure with five and six year olds!  I have been working with my friend and teaching assistant, Mrs. Sandra Smith, for twenty-two years.  We realize that the first days of kindergarten can create both excitement and apprehension for you and your child, and we hope to make this transition very easy.  With your help and partnership, we will all have a super year!
         I grew up in Williamston, and I was very lucky to have attended the schools in Anderson School District One.  In 1994, I graduated from Lander University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Early Childhood Education, and I was also very fortunate to have been trained to teach Reading Recovery.  Upon graduation, I began teaching kindergarten here at West Pelzer Elementary.  I am also very excited to share that I completed and passed the National Board Certification for Teachers in 2008!  My husband and I have two wonderful daughters who are growing up way too fast!  (Please cherish these years...I can promise that they really do pass by quickly!)  In my spare time, I enjoy reading, traveling, sailing, cheering for the Carolina Gamecocks, playing with my dogs "Elroy" and "Gizmo," and spending time with my family.
