About Me:

  • I attended The University of South Carolina from 1981-1985 where I received a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism.

  • I am a native of South Carolina but have traveled extensively
  • Jane Eyre and The Great Gatsby are two of my nerdy favorites
  • I am a research beast and enjoy incorporating history into reading assignments regardless of the  subject matter
  • I live a very active life and enjoy incorporating activities within my classroom.
  • I'm silently (and yet sometimes not so silently) correcting grammar at all times.
