I am in my 17th year here at Stiles Point. I have officially taught 27 years but took off several years to raise my family. I have 4 boys and 1 girl but sometimes it seems that that number is larger. I love to teach and be around young people. I feel that it keeps me young. Besides teaching and being around people, I love to read, cook and bake, sew, craft, and watch people. I enjoy catching up with former student and finding out what they are doing.
I'm originally from Nashville, Tennessee but being a Navy Brat, I have lived several places throughout my life. I have lived on and off in Charleston for thirty years having finished high school here. I have a Bachelor's Degree from David Lipscomb College (University) in Nashville in Speech Communications and Theater. I also hold a Master's of Teaching in Special Education from The Citadel. I am certified to teach in the states of South Carolina, Tennessee, and Maryland in the areas of Speech Communications and Theater, Psychology, Learning Disabilities, Reading, and Elementary Education. I have taught at all levels of school from Pre-k through 12th grade.
