I am so excited to continue my career teaching as a Blazer! My educational background includes a BS in Therapeutic Recreation from Clemson University and a Masters of Arts in Teaching from the University of South Carolina. Having attended both schools, I can honestly say that Clemson is by far the best choice! Before deciding to teach, I worked with an awesome group of individuals through Special Olympics and Camp Spearhead. Both are wonderful opportunities for students with special needs, and excellent learning experiences for peer buddies or partners. I am still involved with Special Olympics and I’m positive that I always gain more from the events than the athletes and campers. Currently at GMC, I am teaching Senior Project. This is a capstone project for the senior year, is required by our Charter, and is mandatory for graduation. Throughout this class, students have a year to complete a personalized learning experience of their choice. For the 2018-2019 school year, I will also be teaching two additional classes: Nutrition & Human Growth & Development. Outside of school I enjoy sports, concerts (or music in general), cycling, reading, lake activities, snow skiing, and visiting family. My favorite time of year is college football season! GO TIGERS! I am also the co-sponsor of Beta Club.
