Lead Teacher | Curriculum Coach

I have been married for 25 years to my husband, Phil. We have 3 amazing children - Cody, Christopher, and Madison. 

I became a preschool teacher because I have a passion for working with young children. My goal is to help them develop a love of learning. It is amazing to watch as a child is able to do something for the first time! I love seeing their confidence soar! The best part of my job is the unconditional love from the children. 

My favorite verse is "I can do all things through Him who gives me strength." Philippians 4:13

Assistant Teacher

My husband and I have been married for six years, and have three children. We love to spend our time doing projects around our house, camping, and fishing. 

It is an honor to be able to watch children grow in their first few years of life, to be there to help shape and mold who they will be is a privilege that I’ve been blessed to  be apart of for some children. The one thing I’m looking forward to is seeing the growth of all the students at ODS from the first day of school to the last. Pouring into children through education, and loving them has always been right where I want to be. 


My favorite Bible verse is : 

Philippians 4:8 

“Finally brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable- if anything is excellent or praiseworthy think about such things.”

Lead Teacher

I am happily married to my high school sweetheart who serves in the US Army. We currently live in Rock Hill and have three wonderful children: Eyan, Emelia, and Elayna. We are a proud military family!


I am a preschool teacher because of my love for children. I enjoy working at ODS because it feels like an extension to my organic family, and we all grow together in the word of God. I love being able to watch the children that attend our school prosper and learn new things. Being able to witness their excitement towards learning firsthand brings me great joy. I know, without a shadow of doubt, that this is where God has intended for me to be.


My hobbies include, spending time with my family, going to the Beach, and trying new recipes. I also enjoy volunteering in the Family Readiness Group that supports SC National Guard Service Members.


My favorite Bible Verse is:

Proverbs 3:5-6 “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.




Assistant Teacher

 I am 25 years old. I graduated from Winthrop with a degree in physical education. 
My husbands and I started dating in high school and got married in 2019. We have two pets that we love a whole lot, a dog named Max and a cat named Francie. 

My favorite hobby is spending time with my family and friends.

I love working at ODS because the staff is welcoming, supportive, and caring. ODS is a school that wants to see both students and teachers succeed. 
I love working with children because a child’s joy is contagious and by working with them, I have the opportunity to help facilitate that joy as they learn new things. 
Children remind me to enjoy the simple things in life. It is a privilege to teach children, not only because their early years are so important for development, but also because they have so much to teach us!

My favorite Bible verse is "For His anger is but for a moment, His favor is for life; Weeping may endure for a night, But joy comes in the morning." Psalm 30:5
