I am originally from Pittsburgh, PA. I went to college at Purdue University in West Lafayette, IN, and received a B.A. in Elementary Education in 1980. I moved to South Carolina after college and taught 5th and 6th grade math in the Colleton County School District for 36 years. I also have 18 hours towards a Masters in Early Childhood Education, but discovered I was better suited to teach older students! :) I am now certified in middle school math. I transferred to Dorchester District 4 in 2017 and currently teach 6th grade math at St. George Middle School. I will have my GT Certification by June 2020. I love my profession and thoroughly enjoy teaching math to middle school students!
