Welcome to Jellyfish Junction!
"Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire."
William Butler Yeats

About Me:I was born and raised in upstate New York.  I earned a bachelor degree from the State University of New York at New Paltz in elementary education and psychology.  I later earned my master from the University of Phoenix in curriculum instruction and design. 
This is my eleventh year teaching.  I have had the unique opportunity to teach in a variety of schools, ranging from Kindergarten to 5th grade!
I married my high school sweetheart, and together we have two beautiful children.  Ashley, who is a junior at Clemson; and my son Jordan who is a junior at Wando
.  We live right here in Mount Pleasant with our dogs Malu and Nala.


 Philosophy:
I believe that each child is a unique individual who needs a secure, caring,and stimulating atmosphere in which to grow and mature emotionally,intellectually, physically, and socially. It is my desire as a educator to help students meet their fullest potential in these areas by providing an environment that is safe, supports risk-taking, and invites a sharing of ideas.There are three elements that I believe are conducive to establishing such an environment, (1) the teacher acting as a guide, (2) allowing the child's natural curiosity to direct his/her learning, and (3) promoting respect for all things and all people.
