Education is not a cookie-cutter profession. Every student can learn, but must be met where he/she is. A teacher’s job is to encourage, guide, motivate, and support students in every step of their learning experience!
I received my Bachelor’s Degree in English with a minor in Education from the University of South Carolina. I then went on to receive my Master’s Degree in Education. Recently, I completed a Master’s in Business Administration. I am a certified teacher in the state of South Carolina.
I have 10 years teaching in public high schools, public middle schools, and private schools; additionally, I have 11 years in teaching college English and reading courses that help middle school and high school students prepare for the rigors of college.
As an English teacher, I, of course, enjoy reading, but I also enjoy mountain biking, community service, and working with students to reach their full abilities. I work with at-risk students in the community and work with college admissions programs to help students transition from high school to a technical or four-year college. Several of my students are now in medical school.
