Welcome to K-D's Website!

I am so excited to be your child's teacher this school year! This is my second year teaching kindergarten at Midland Park Primary! I am from Summerville, SC. I graduated from the University of South Carolina with a Bachelor of Arts in Mass Communications majoring in advertising and minoring in media arts. I worked at an advertising agency in Columbia, SC for almost 3 years before attending the College of Charleston for graduate school. I graduated from CofC with a Master of Arts in Teaching for Early Childhood Education. I absolutely love learning and growing with the students each day. In my free time, I enjoy baking, yoga, the beach and spending time with my family.
