International School for the Arts
Degrees and Certifications:
I am Dr. Epps/Dr. E a Learning Strategies Resource Teacher, excited to be a part of the Irmo High School Family. I am a native of Kingstree, SC where I first fell in love with music. My love of music took me on a ride and allowed me to reinvent myself over and over again. I received my BA in Psychology from Livingstone College where I was a band scholarship recipient. I participated in marching, concert, jazz and pep bands.
I received my Masters of Sports Administration and Juris Doctorate from St. Thomas University in Miami, Florida. I was employed with Slip N Slide Records as the Business and Legal Affairs Director where I worked with some of the greats, past and present, on the creative and business side of the industry.
I have completed all PACE requirements; an alternative route certification program offered by the state of South Carolina, and have submitted my professional license request to the Dpeartment of Education. Teaching is an art form and I am passionate about the profession. Establishing authority and approachability among the student population will be the vehicle in which I utilize to reach my students. This is my third year at IHS and I am excited about continued personal and professional GROWTH.
I enjoy writing my thoughts (some call it poetry), playing/listening to music, watching sports (namely Dallas Cowboys and Duke Blue Devils) and gaming when time permits.
