About Me

I am the child of educators.  Both of my parents were teachers.  My mother was an elementary teacher and my father was a high school Biology teacher. I followed in my daddy's footsteps and graduated from Auburn University with a BS in Secondary Education with majors in Biology & English.

Before coming to SCETV, I taught in K-12 schools for 13 years. Throughout my 13 year teaching career I served in a number of districts in Georgia and South Carolina. While I really enjoyed teaching Biology, I also have experience teaching Chemistry, Physical Science, Earth Science, English, 8th grade Math, Algebra I, Algebra II and Geometry. I also have experience homeschooling my two girls and working in Youth Services at Richland County Public Library.

I started working at SCETV in October 2005 as an Instructional Technology Specialist.  Each year I help over 3,000 SC teachers learn ways to integrate technology into their lessons.  I also serve on the board for South Carolina Association for Educational Technology (SCAET) and have served on the FETC Presenter Proposal Review Committee for the 2019 & 2020 Conferences.
