I have been teaching math for nine years, all here in the White County School System.  I began my career teaching 8th grade math and then moved to 7th grade.  My next move was to White County High School, where I taught Math 1 and Math 2 as well as math support in both of these classes.  I began my coaching career with 8th grade girls.  I have also coached 7th grade boys and was an assistant girls basketball coach while teaching at the high school.  I am now back coaching 8th grade girls at WCMS.  Before my teaching career, I spent most of my  life as an insurance salesperson in the state of South Carolina and Georgia. 


In 2006, at the age of 50, I decided to pursue a life long dream of mine, which was to become a teacher.  In 2009, I received a Masters degree in Secondary Math Education from Piedmont College.  Math was always one of my favorite subjects throughout my educational career, therefore the reason I chose this subject to teach.  The game of basketball has also been another great love of mine and I have been coaching basketball ever since I started teaching math.  I equate math and basketball because you have to practice the fundamentals and perform them well before you can advance your skills to another level.  Both math and basketball require hard work and perseverance, which I consider are skills that will help a person become successful in life.  My goal for every student is to not only teach them math, but to implant a desire in a young person's heart to become a lifelong leaner.
