I received my K-12 education in Spartanburg, SC District #6. I graduated from Dorman High School and am still VERY proud to call myself a Cavalier. From Dorman, I went to Winthrop University (college at the time I attended) and received a Bachelor's Degree in Business Education. At that time in history, there was a teacher overage and I was out of school working temporary jobs when I decided to go back to school for my Master's Degree. I attended Converse College in Spartanburg, SC and received a Master's Degree in Special Education. I am currently seeking an Ed.S. from East Carolina University in Educational Leadership.

I have been in education for 27 years and have taught students from ages 4-84. My favorite subject to tutor is accounting. I LOVE accounting. It makes sense to me. I have a minor in accounting, but choose to go the education route in undergraduate. I believe that education gives one what one puts in. I have worked with very smart students who were lazy and did poorly in the academic arena and students who were not so smart but worked hard and were very successful in their academics.

Outside of the academic world, I love to go camping and sit and read. Over Memorial Day, my family and I went to the beach and in two days, I read two complete books. I was in my happy place.
