Welcome to Wando!

I am originally from Columbia, South Carolina.  I received both a Bachelor's in English and Master's in Teaching from the University of South Carolina before moving to Mt. Pleasant.  This is my 12th year at Wando.  I am currently working with both the English IV and Intervention teams and teaching AP Research.

I'm looking forward to a great year and hope you are as well!

Courses Taught

Intervention


English IV, CP

English IV CP is designed to prepare students for the rigorous expectations of college-level courses while addressing the South Carolina English and Language Arts Curriculum Standards.  This course is geared toward 12th graders who have successfully completed English III CP and who plan to enter college, the workplace, or the military upon graduation.  The main components of the course are the study of British literature and its relevance to our culture and the Warrior Project research project. Students will write essays which analyze various aspects of the literature and the project and reflect their thinking about the relevance to their lives.  The Warrior Project will encourage students to enhance their research and analysis skills, while also honing many practical, real-world applications. Weekly vocabulary study enhances students’ ability to comprehend more rigorous reading assignments, and daily practice of mechanics and correct usage bolster the ability to speak and write more fluently. 


English IV will be conducted through Google Classroom.  Please see your teacher for the code to register.

AP Research

(AP Research Course and Exam Description, p. 8)

AP Research, the second course in the AP Capstone experience, allows students to deeply explore an academic topic, problem, issue, or idea of individual interest.  Students design, plan, and implement a yearlong investigation to address a research question. Through this inquiry, they further the skills they acquired in the AP Seminar course by learning research methodology, employing ethical research practices, and accessing, analyzing, and synthesizing information.  Students reflect on their skill development, document their processes and curate the artifacts of their scholarly work through a Process and Reflection Portfolio. This course culminates in an academic paper of 4,000-5,000 words (accompanied by a performance, exhibit, or product where applicable) and a Presentation with an Oral Defense.

AP Research will be conducted through Google Classroom.  Please see your teacher for the code to register.
