I am really happy to be teaching at T L Hanna!

I have been teaching for twenty years.  I am a National Board Certified Teacher in Secondary English, Special Education, and Online Instruction.  My very favorite part of teaching is the students!  I love working with high school age students and enjoy helping them find their strengths.  I know they take an extra amount of patience and understanding, but I believe I have the gift to work well with them.

My specialties are in composition, critical reading, and incorporating technology into instruction.  My goal is to help students improve in all these areas! 

Before I became a teacher, I worked in marketing and sales.  I once owned and operated a sightseeing business in Charleston, SC, prior to Hurricane Hugo (1989).  Earlier, I worked as a professional meeting planner and supervised meetings at Seabrook Island Conference Resort.  I bring my experience in the work world to my teaching.
