Biography:

I am a 1995 Camden High graduate and a 1999 University of South Carolina graduate with a B.A in French. I also received my Masters in Administration in 2006 from USC. I’m excited to be back at Camden High School where I look forward to working with the Bulldog Family. I’ve lived in Camden for the past 25 years and am motivated to work with the students, staff and stakeholders in ensuring we provide the most relevant, up to date instruction for the students of Kershaw County.
I most recently served as the Assistant Director of Curriculum at Woolard Technology Center.  Prior to WTC, I served as Assistant Principal at North Central High School for ten years. My previous teaching experiences include teaching French at Swansea High School and Camden High School, where I served as the foreign language department head. I was also honored as Camden High School's Teacher of the Year for the 2006-2007 school year. My passion lies in making sure all students have every opportunity for success and are prepared for their futures... whether that is the workforce, military, technical school or university. 

I’m married to Tripp Montgomery, also a Camden High graduate and have two children, Dru and Meg, both of whom are Camden High graduates. Dru graduated from Clemson University with a degree in Biochemistry in December of 2023 and Meg is currently studying Microbiology at Clemson University.

Biography:

I received my B.S. degree from Newberry College in 1981.  I completed my Master’s Degree from Capella University in 2010 and received my administrative certification shortly thereafter.

I began my teaching career with Kershaw County School District in the summer of 1998 at Camden High as a Physical Education/Health instructor, assistant varsity football coach and Head JV Boy’ basketball coach.  I became an assistant principal in June of 2012. I am thrilled to be working with our teachers, staff and student body in the capacity of assistant principal for the 11th grade.

I am a firm believer in the notion that with time, patience, understanding, commitment, dedication and hard work all students have the capacity to learn and reach their full potential in life. I look forward to continuing with this process in our commitment to Bulldog Excellence.

Hello and Greetings Bulldog Family!

Originally from the Lowcountry, it is with great excitement and anticipation that I continue my career with KCSD, but change gears by being the newest addition to the administrative staff, here at CHS! I can not express how thankful I am for the opportunity to connect with such great students, families, and other stakeholders in the community. 

In 1997, I graduated from Carolina with a B.A. in English and I currently hold two Master's degrees. 

While teaching is my passion, I make time for things I love, such as family, friends, Carolina games, shopping, and reading.

I look forward to an awesome school year. Hope you do, too!
