Hello friends and welcome to Kindergarten! I would love to tell you a little about me!  I grew up in Savannah and moved out the Effingham county when I was in the eigth grade. I was lucky enough to attend SEHS, I was in marching band, and I rode my horse onto the football feild as a Mustang Mascot.  Go Mustangs!  I graduted with a bacholors degree in psychology from Georgia State University in Atlanta and soon moved to North Carolina.  While in North Carolina for about ten years I worked as the director of activities in a nursing home and I met my husband.  We moved back to Effingham to be closer to family and well because it's awseome.  I have two fun boys, one is 8 and the other is 3.  I have been a paraprofessional in the Effingham county school system for the past three years and now I'm about to enjoy an amazing year as a Kindergarten teacher! I'm thrilled to be here and I can't wait for all of the adventures and learning that are to come!


Jaime Whiddon is our fantastic Paraprofessional! She has also been in the Effingham county school system working as a paraprofessional for the past four years. She has five children with the oldest just starting college and the youngest just starting middle school. 

We are both so excited for our Kindergarten adventure!
