“When I first started my education at Clemson University, I was studying to become an architect. However, I quickly learned that I did not have the same desire to excel in that field compared to my peers, which left me a bit lost as to what to do. The following summer, I worked at a summer camp for boys, and it was there that I found a passion for working with children. I decided to go into teaching, where I could combine my desire to help students grow with my gift of mathematics.
Since I started at SCCA, it's been similar to a family atmosphere amongst the staff. Being able to easily communicate with one another has allowed us to put students in their best positions to excel in their education. Above all, the thing that I love most about teaching at South Carolina Connections Academy is the students. I have been blessed to be able to work with excellent students who are dedicated to enriching their mathematical knowledge, and I only hope to instill in them a piece of knowledge as they continue to grow in their lives.
