My educational journey began at South Carolina State University where I received a Bachelor’s degree in Mathematics Education. I also have a Master’s of Education from Cambridge College in Boston, MA, and a Master’s in Educational Leadership from Grand Canyon in Phoenix, AZ. I have faithfully answered my calling to education for over twenty-five years. I have taught algebra, geometry, and pre-calculus. I have also served as the Curriculum Specialist at Kingstree Senior High School and as the Coordinator/Director of Hope Academy. My educational philosophy is best summed up in the words of Solomon Ortiz: “Education is the key to success in life, and teachers make a lasting impact in the lives of their students.” Our future lies in the hands and minds of today’s students. I look forward to working with the families and students of Hemingway M. B. Lee Middle School!
