See you soon!
I graduated from USC with an undergradate degree in Journalism and Mass Communications and an M.A.T. in English. My master's +30 is in Differentiation Utilizing Technology and I am currently working on my second master's degree. My career with District 5 began with student teaching in spring of 1997 at Irmo High and I accepted my first postition with the English Department of Dutch Fork High that same year.
After my second year of teaching, I spent the next decade in pharmaceutical sales focusing on Diabetes and insomnia. I also worked in the fitness industry from choregraphing workouts for video productions, to promoting products on live television, to teaching classes in local studios. (As the mother of two very active children who attend Chapin cluster schools, my workouts now primarily consist of keeping up with their schedules!) Even when I was working for corporate America, I was often in an instructional leadership role for my district and I couldn't ignore the obvious: I was an educator at heart and wanted to get back to the classroom. In 2011 I was incredibly lucky to be able to return to Dutch Fork High, and the following year I transferred to Chapin High to be closer to the community in which I live and serve.
My goal is for students to become better commnicators and stronger thinkers while also developing new levels of self-leadership - skills I found to be critical for success in my own time out of the classroom. The global job market is more demanding than ever, and I will push students to not just be career and college ready but to be career and college competitive. I look forward to working with you this year!
