I grew up in a Christian home and came to Christ at the age of six. I have always loved to read and in high school  realized that I also loved to communicate through the written word. Because my favorite classes were always my English classes, I decided to major in Secondary Education with a proficiency in English. I went on to obtain my M. Ed. in Teaching English and started teaching college-level freshman English courses in the fall of 1988.  

God has given me the opportunity to work primarily with students who struggle with grammar. At one time I developed my own curriculum in order to help these students succeed academically in their freshman English courses. I am always looking for ways to improve my teaching skills, including participating in a summer institute and taking an editing course from Northern Arizona University.

My husband and I have three grown children and two grandchildren. We have been members of  Faith Baptist Church in Taylors, SC, since 1985. I serve as the nursery director at church, and I also enjoy digital scrapbooking, reading, and spending time with my family.
