"The function of education is to get one to think intensively and to think critically.  Intelligence plus character - that is the goal of true education." (Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.) 

Greetings panther community!  I'm so excited to be at Ridge Point! This is my 11th year teaching.  I graduated from The University of South Carolina with a bachelors degree in English and a Masters degree in Secondary Education.  Having the opportunity to be an educator is a privilege!  In my class, your child will be challenged to think critically, create authentic work and practice real world application of knowledge.  I believe in rigor, relevance and relationships.  My goal is to inspire teens to use communication skills as a tool to have a voice in society and an impact in our world.
