I was born in Detroit, Michigan, and at the age of seven, I moved to Charlotte, NC. Later I moved to Walhalla, SC and graduated from Walhalla High School in 1980. After attending Winthrop University in 1984, I went on to get a second BA at USC in Columbia, SC. So I have a BA in English and in Journalism. I have taught for 30 years. This is year 31. I love teaching English!
