I am excited to serve you as the principal  of Meadow Glen Middle School. I have a passion for teaching and learning.

I have been very fortunate to work with many wonderful students, parents, and educators and because of their hard work our schools have been recognized as Red Carpet Award winners, Palmetto Gold recipients, Exemplary Writing winners, Middle Level Professional Development Award winners, and we have made the School Improvement Honor Roll. I enjoy presenting at both state and national conferences, I serve on the CERRA Board of Directors as well as the SC Middle School Association Board.  I love to read, water ski, fish and travel. I look forward to working with you next year! Go Gators! or 803-821-0601
