Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome students and families, I would like to take this opportunity to tell you just a bit about myself. I was born in Southern California and was then raised in Las Vegas. After leaving Las Vegas I lived in several places, including Sacramento, CA; Tampa, FL; and Hartford, CT. My family and I moved to Summerville, SC in 2012 and have found a welcoming home in the heart and soul of the South. That family consists of two wonderful children, my son was born in 2006 and my daughter in 2009. I have been incredibly fortunate that they get along so well. Their personalities are so entirely different, yet they work well together. They will always be my proudest achievement, they have taught me much, including patience, understanding, acceptance, and most importantly unconditional love. I hold two Bachelors of Arts degrees. The first is in Business Administration from the University of Nevada Las Vegas. The second is a Bachelor of Arts degree from Ashford University, in English with an emphasis in Linguistics and Literacy. I graduated both programs Summa Cum Laude. I began working for a major airline fresh out of my years at UNLV. There, I held many positions, but the one I loved most was the position of Supervisor of Federal Training and Education. I knew then that I was meant to be a teacher. Despite knowing that I loved teaching, I knew that I needed to teach a subject that was dear to me. Therefore, I went back to school and earned my English degree with the hope and intent of teaching children to love language and literature as I do.
