Briefly about myself, I am originally from New York and moved to South Carolina in 2008. I worked for the New York Daily News and the New York Times for a total of 16 years before i began teaching. I am presently finishing up my comprehensive exam for my Ed. D., and will be working on my dissertation during the 2016/17 school year. I believe a good teacher has a passion for their subject and student success, while engaging the students in relevant subject matter.
