This school year was a challenging one, but we made it! I hope everyone has a fun and exciting summer break! See you in the fall. 





Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year! This is my 8th year teaching science at Riverwood Middle School. I earned my undergraduate degree at Meredith College & pursued my Master’s in Education at Clemson University. In my spare time, I like to go to the gym, shop, and binge watch my favorite Crime/Superhero TV shows. I am excited to be your child's science teacher this year, and I cannot wait to meet each and every one of my students!
