This is my twenty-third year at ADE and my seventh year as principal. Previously, I was a fifth grade teacher, curriculum coach, and assistant principal at the school. I have been in education for 26 years. One of the highlights of my teaching career was being selected as the 2003 ADE Teacher of the Year. I graduated from Clemson University with a degree in Elementary Education in 1990 and received my Master's Degree in Educational Administration from the University of South Carolina in 2007. I enjoy spending time with my husband and two daughters and cheering for the Clemson Tigers.
