From the Principal

Welcome to Willow Drive! I am a Sumter native, having graduated with the first class of Sumter High, 1971. I received my B.S. and M. Ed. from Winthrop University and began my teaching at High Hills Middle School teaching 6th and 7th ELA and Math. I was there for 4 ½ years and spent the next 13 years teaching 8th grade Math, Algebra I, Pre-Algebra, and Transitional Math at R. E. Davis. I then moved to Furman Middle School, serving as an assistant principal for 8 years. I was principal at High Hills Elementary for 8 years, adding Shaw Heights Elementary the last year. This is my third year at Willow Drive.

Please drop by and see me when you are in the neighborhood!
