Thank you, Kershaw County

As my family and I move to Aiken, I would be remiss if I did not share my gratitude to this community for all that you have done for us. My husband, KT, grew up here and has loved Camden his entire life. Being from up north, I was unsure if a Michigan girl would fit in. Will Camden accept me? The answer was “yes.”  Not only did Camden accept me, they allowed me to grow as a mom, a wife, and also as a teacher. I spent five years in this school district, first at Mt. Pisgah and Bethune and then at Pine Tree Hill Elementary School. As a teacher, and then as the 2008 South Carolina Teacher of the Year, I was honored and celebrated by this community. I want to thank all of our friends and acquaintances here in Camden and in Kershaw County for the love and acceptance that you have shown.

 I also want to thank my former students and their families who I will love and remember for a lifetime. I will also always remember the joy of working on Special Olympics here and am so thankful for a community that stepped up when there was a need and was brave enough to fill that need, despite the obstacles.

My prayer is that I can continue to make a difference in education, particularly in special education, and someday I hope to return to make a difference here in Kershaw County once again.
