I am excited to be teaching my fourth year as a Concord Spider! I will be teaching English III and III Honors this year. In addition, I will be teaching yearbook and the advisor for The Spider Web for the third year in a row.  Previously I taught seventh grade AIG, Scholars, and ELA at CMS for three years. Before that I taught Creative Writing, English II, English I Honors, and Freshman Seminar at Summerville High School in S. Carolina for six years. While at SHS I assisted the softball team which has been the SC state runner-up three of the past five years. I also taught 7th and 8th grade GATE (AIG) at DuBose Middle in Dorchester County for five years. I began my teaching journey teaching English I Honors at The Charleston County School of the Arts. My former career was at The College of Charleston where I was a Div. I head coach in the Southern Conference for five years and pitching coach for two years in the TAAC conference.
