Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Wilson Addison
I am a graduate of Wilson High School and I am honored to be working here as an English teacher. Wilson prepared me for a very diverse career and made me comfortable with being able to navigate in a world outside the confines of Florence. After graduation from Wilson, I attended VIrginia State University and earned a BA degree in English. After graduation from VSU, I worked as a reporter for WXEX TV in Richmond, VA and later taught middle school English in Richmond.
As the wife of a career Air Force sergeant, I lived in a number of states where I taught in diverse communities. I earned a Masters in Educational Leadership from Wayne State in Detroit, Michigan.
Upon our return to Florence, I worked briefly as a middle school English teacher at Sneed Middle School, and then for several years as an assitant principal. I served as a high school principal with District 4 and in 2004, returned to my high school alma mater. By a circutious route, I returned to the very school that made me the teacher that I am today.
Proud to be a tiger.
