What's your favorite thing about working at Greenville College?

My favorite thing about Greenville is the students. I love how engaged and excited they are about learning. How they seek out new experiences and ideas to wrestle with as they develop into people with a heart for God.

What attracted you to Education?

I love the learning process, so I only ever wanted to become a teacher. Now that I get to teach teachers... I feel I am the luckiest girl in the world.

What's your favorite thing about working at Greenville College?

As an alum, GC has always held a special place in my heart. When I was initially hired on the faculty one of the first things I experienced was the faculty coming together in prayer over the existing/new students and their families. When I was a student here, I hadn't really contemplated that I was entering a community that was already in prayer and expectation over me. Community isn't merely a place to us; it is a way of being with one another.

What attracted you to Education, and how do you use it outside of the classroom?

I was originally interested in entering Medicine. After a practicum experience with a doctor, I felt strongly that God was leading me in another direction. After some time of seeking, I realized that the great pleasure I felt from the experiences I had as a Teaching Assistant (during grad school) and a Lab Assistant (at GC) was an indicator that Education was the path I should take. I have never regretted this decision! I love that I get the opportunity to engage with young people for at least a year, building relationships that equip and empower them for future action. The field of Education has also been very good to me. I have had opportunities to teach in day and boarding schools, in the U.S. and overseas.

What's your favorite thing about working at Greenville College?

I love working at Greenville College because I am able to work with other professors who share my passion for teaching and for Jesus Christ. It is such a friendly and supportive environment. I also really enjoy watching students increase both their language abilities and their enthusiasm for interacting with and serving Spanish-speaking communities at home and abroad.

I have been a special education administrator with Tri-County Special Education for the past two years, providing support and services for 4 school districts. Next year I will coordinate services for the Clinton and Chester-East Lincoln schools. I have been a special education teacher in elementary, middle school and high school settings, and have taught students with social emotional disorders for five years in a self-contained and resource classroom. For the last five years I have taught students with learning disabilities at the high school level, and most recently was also P.B.I.S External Coach. I have always wanted the opportunity to teach at the college level and look forward to expanding the knowledge level of my future students.
