How long have you been a teacher?

“This year marks my 20th year in the classroom; however, it should be my 27th.  I took seven years off to be a stay-at-home mom to my three daughters:  Kelsey, a senior, McKenna, a junior, and Riley, a freshman.”

 

If you’ve taught at other schools, where?

“…Irmo High School… Dutch Fork High School (1st faculty of this school; 1st varsity cheer coach)… Michigan Center High School… Michigan Center, MI (I graduated from this school in 1984.  My father also taught here, so I had the opportunity to work with my dad every day!)… Traverse City West Senior High School, Traverse City, MI… Pelion Middle School, Pelion, SC… St. Joseph Catholic School, Columbia, SC…Chapin Middle School, Chapin, SC.”

 

What do you like best about Chapin High School?

“I love that I get to go to work with my girls every day!  Anyone who knows me knows that Kelsey, McKenna, and Riley are my world!  I also love that I get to teach kids I taught in middle school.  I have had so much fun catching up with former students.  Seeing the faces of former students has actually made this transition easier for me.  They have been so kind.  Finally, I love the faculty, staff, and administration at CHS.  I have had the opportunity to get to know them throughout the years, and I consider it such an honor to be among the very finest in this state.”

 

What is an interesting fact about yourself that you would like us to know?

“Well, I’ve got to admit that I am not one of those cool people who has interesting talents, etc.  Hmmmm…something interesting about me.  Oh…I love 80’s rock, and my girls share in this passion.  Another “interesting” fact about myself is that I am a HUGE Michigan Wolverines fan!  Go Blue!”
