I am proud to be a Wilson High School Tiger. I love our school and our students and am excited about our journey together this year!
I grew up in Rock Hill, SC. I have degrees in English and Spanish from Furman University and a Masters Degree from The Peabody College at Vanderbilt University. I have taken an additional 30 graduate hours and am National Board Certified. I am a Winthrop Writing Project Teaching Consultant and have been trained in MYP Literature. Prior to moving to Florence, I lived in Charlotte, where I taught for five years in nearby Fort Mill. This will be my eighth year at Wilson. I have taught many levels and types of students. I believe that all students can learn, and try to encourage my students to become lifelong learners and readers. I believe that every child deserves a great teacher every day.
I was an IB student myself and commend you for challenging yourself with the IB Program; you will be thankful for this challenge when you begin college and find yourself more prepared than most of your peers! As your English teacher, I look forward to leading you around the world and through time, exploring universal themes through literature, discussion, and writing.
