Welcome to my dream! It has always been my dream to live in Charleston and to assist in bringing out the inner artist in everyone. My art career began in Reston, Virginia in the "garbage pit." (This was where the two garbage cans were stored .) I would pull them out and create a space to do "art's and crafts" with my friends from the neighborhood. It was always my therapy, my creative outlet and my way to give gifts to others.
I received my BFA in Art Education with a minor in sculpture and ceramics from the University of South Carolina in 1995. Having children, right after college slowed my art career a bit, but kick started my Montessori interests. I continued my education at Lander University with a Master of Education in Montessori. To fully understand the flow of the Montessori curriculum, I have completed Montessori training from Primary through Upper Elementary and consequently became SC and AMS certified for all three. This allows me to be able to create extensions that will further enhance the Montessori curriculum and help the students master content in an expressive and creative manner.
I am so excited to be a part of the Charleston County School District!
