Mrs. Alice White
Welcome to World Languages 2019-2020. I am currently serving as a Spanish instructor and Department Head in the World Language Department I am beginning my 11th year at Chapin High School.
I graduated from Wofford College with a B.A. in Spanish . During that time I studied at the University of Seville in Seville, Spain. That was only the beginning of my love of language and travel. I travelled throughout much of Europe during the year following my graduation before returning to begin my graduate studies. I earned an M.A.T in Spanish from USC Columbia. I am also in the process of earning my Special Education certification.
I began teaching high school in 1991. After the birth of my first child I decided to be a stay at home Mom. During that time I created the Bilingual Buddies Spanish Enrichment Program providing Spanish classes in preschools, community areas and businesses. I joined Lexington Richland School District 5 as an elementary teacher with Lake Murray and Dutch Fork Elementary Schools. Later the opportunity arose for me to become a Chapin High School Eagle and here I am! Last year I had the honor and opportunity of serving as Teacher of the Year for Chapin High School and I could not have been more thrilled at the opportunities this provided!
