I just completed my fifth year teaching English at R.J. Reynolds High School in Winston-Salem, NC, and I am very excited to be teaching at Wando this fall. I received my B.A. in English from Furman University, and my M.A.T. in Education from Salem College. I was accepted to and completed the Library of Congress Summer Institute for Teachers, and I also work as an instructor with the North Carolina Governor's School West summer program. Additionally, and most proudly, I am the recipient of the 1990 Most Improved Behavior Award for Mrs. Hamrick’s kindergarten class at Quarles Elementary in Long Beach, MS.
