Francis Marion University - Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Education

 As a 30+ year veteran of FSD3, I have had the privilege of teaching at the elementary, middle, and high school levels to serve students of the greater Lake City community.  In addition to teaching, I was afforded the opportunity to coach volleyball, softball, and basketball for Lake City High School for many years.  

I began my career in FSD3 at J. Paul Truluck Elementary School where I taught 5th grade for 15 years.  I was named Teacher of the Year during this time. In 2002, I moved to Lake City High School to teach English Language Arts and Writing to 11th and 12th graders.   In 2004, I became a Master Teacher through the Teacher Advancement Program (TAP).  I was a Master Teacher at Lake City Early Childhood Development Center for 10 years. 

Currently, I am the Literacy Coach at J. Paul Creative Arts and Science Magnet School where I work to provide high-quality professional development and instructional strategies for teachers.
