I am delighted to be teaching English 1 and Freshman Success. My objective is to create a learning environment in which all students feel comfortable and enjoy learning. My philosphy of instuction is based on researcher Robert Marzano's proven strategy of I do, We do, You do. This evidence-based technique has proven to give students a distinct learning advantage.
When I'm not at school, I enjoy cooking and trying new foods with my husband. I also enjoy visiting my grown children who reside out of state. My dog, Louie, is a constant companion and enjoys car journeys as much as I do!
Covid-19 Closure Update: I'm sure you have heard we that we won't be returning to campus this academic year. I am sorry we won't close out the year in person, but please know I am available by phone and online to help you with your distance learning assignments. I'll look forward to seeing you in the fall semester.
If you need to speak to me during our closure, please call (803) 443-6109.
PLEASE be sure to put your name on each page of your distance learning packets. I've seen packets come in with no name which cannot receive proper grade credit. Be sure your name is on each subject.
