Degrees and Certifications:
I received my BS degree in Marine Biology from the College of Charleston in 1996. I started teaching for Charleston County School District in 1998 and taught science until receiving my M.Ed. in science and mathematics for teachers in 2003. After receiving my M.Ed., I added mathematics to my certification and have been teaching math since 2004. This is my eleventh year teaching at Summerville High School , my tenth year serving as math department chair and my third year serving as engineering department chair. My Civil Engineering and Architecture, and Principles of Engineering courses were completed at the University of South Carolina. I have four wonderful children, Jordan 29, Nicholas 24, Olivia 15, and Pearce 12. I love teaching and am an advocate for a great and challenging education for all students.
