About Me

I am originally from South Carolina and was blessed to have some amazing teachers in the less than perfect public school system of the South. I completed my undergraduate at Clemson University and then flocked back to Columbia armed with a liberal arts degree and no skill set. I was a waitress/server for many years and then "moved up" to become an assistant manager at a local grocery store. Needless to say, I was not living up to my full potential. With the help and encouragement of a very wise friend, I realized my dream and began an alternative track to obtaining my teaching license. I quickly found myself in the most difficult and, in the same breath, most rewarding profession I could have ever imagined. I ardently believe that I was meant to be in the classroom, helping students find their passions. Currently, I am pursuing my M. Ed. in education technology in hopes that I will be able to help our students more profoundly in developing the skills necessary for the 21st century. I long to be back in the classroom, but for now I am passionate about my own learning.... which is why Edmodo is awesome!!
