Degrees and Certifications:
Hello Everyone! My name is Mrs. McFadden. This year I will be teaching 8th grade Careers here at John W. Moore Middle School. I am in my 7th year of teaching. I was an adjunct instructor at Central Carolina Technical College as a Criminal Justice instructor. I have taught 8th thru 12th grade at Timmonsville High School. I taught Computer Science, Fundamentals of Computing, Essentials of Computing, Computer Basics, Computer Programming, Desktop Publishing, IBA 1, and Jobs for America’s Graduates (JAG). I was also the APEX Coordinator, the Alternative Learning Coordinator, and FBLA advisor.
I was born in Baltimore, Maryland. Around middle school, on and off, I moved to Lake City, SC. I graduated from Lake City High School (Go Panthers!). During my high school years at Lake City, I played JV basketball, Varsity Basketball, Varsity Softball, and Varsity Volleyball.
After graduating from high school, I attended Morris College and played basketball, softball, SGA (secretary), and joined Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc. I later graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Organizational Management.
Fast forward, I entered law enforcement with Lake City Police Department. There, I was a patrolman first class, and a Community Oriented Police Officer (COP). After leaving the Lake City Police Department, I continued my law enforcement career at the Florence County Sheriff’s Office. There, I served as a School Resource Officer (SRO) at Sneed Middle and a Civil Deputy.
I continued my education at Troy University, graduating with a Master’s Degree in Criminal Justice and a Master’s Degree in Post-Secondary Education. I decided to leave law enforcement and continue teaching. I enjoy teaching. I love the moments when I see former students being productive citizens! This may not be my first plan, but it is truly the best plan!
LETS GO LIONS!!!!
