About Me I am the fifth grade English, Language Arts, Reading and Social Studies teacher at The Academy. I have been teaching for over 20 years. I graduated from Winthrop University in 1997 and earned my masters degree for Walden University in 2009. I began my career at Chester Park Primary where I taught first grade. I then went on to Chester Park Inquiry where I taught 2nd grade. I currently teach fifth grade at The Academy. I have two children and 4 grandchildren. I love traveling, spending time with my family, singing in my church choir, and the Dallas Cowboys.
