Both the students and staff at SEA bring out the best in people, and I feel honored to be working with such tremendously talented and gifted people on a daily basis.

Every school has to teach the three R’s, but SEA goes beyond that, students have an opportunity to experience science and social studies, and I am happy to be part of that.

I love teaching social studies – it has been my passion since 1989. My favorite part of any school year is seeing children becoming critical thinkers and those ‘ah ha’ moments! I am looking forward to beginning a new chapter in my career at Sweetwater Episcopal and getting the opportunity to see my new students flourish and thrive in a kind and caring environment.
