Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Susan Burnette

I am a native South Carolinian, but have had the opportunity to live in various places before returning to my roots. This yearn for travel was fueled by the books I read as a youngster; I have lived in Rhode Island, California, and New Jersey and have traveled to The Philippines, Hong Kong, China, Hawaii, and England as well as the beautiful fjord region of eastern Canada.

                I graduated with a degree in English from Francis Marion College in 1976 but delayed my teaching career during my travels and during the time I raised my three children. I began teaching at Givhans Alternative Program where I remained for nine years, teaching Read 180, Language, English I,  English IV, and Seventh Grade ELA Writing.

I am excited to be working with the students at Fort Dorchester High School as they progress toward graduation.
