Hi! My name is Ms. Sonya Lawson. I teach high school English I. This is my first year teaching at Givhans Alternative Program and in Dorchester School District 2.
I received my Bachelor and Master degrees in English Education from South Carolina State University in Orangeburg, South Carolina.
I have been teaching English at the high school level for 18 years. Over the years, I have taught English I - IV, Creative Writing, Journalism, HSAP Reading and Writing, Exit Exam Reading and Writing, SAT Prep, Read 180, and Direct Reading.
