Hello everyone! I am a 7th Grade Life Science teacher at Camden Middle School, GA. I am currently in my 3rd year in the school system after graduating from the University of South Carolina with a degree in Biological Science. I am currently working towards obtaining my M.A.T. in Secondary Science Education as well. I have always been passionate about biology and genetics, and look forward to learning more with all of you!
