I grew up in Pomaria, South Carolina in Newberry County. I am the oldest of three girls; all of whom are educators. I graduated from Mid-Carolina High School and received a B.A. in English/Writing Emphasis from Columbia College. After college, I completed a Master of Mass Communications and a Master of the Art of Teaching, both from the University of South Carolina. I taught at Mid-Carolina Middle School and then spent twenty-three years teaching English at Dutch Fork High School until I retired this year.
My passion is literacy. I love to read, and I want everyone to share in the joy of reading! Many of my former students had read few, if any, books for fun. They simply had not found the right book…yet! In addition to convincing young adults to read, I enjoy spending time at Lake Murray, Clemson football, working in my yard, and playing with my Cavalier King Charles spaniel Boo Radley.
