I have been teaching children in Charleston County to read, speak, and write English since 1991. I am currently teaching ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) at Belle Hall, Pinckney, and Laurel Hill. A common question I am asked is how many languages I speak.  My answer is,"One, but I speak it really well."   Before becoming an ESOL teacher, I taught high school and middle school English.  My Master's Degree is in teaching reading.  I am National Board Certified in teaching English as a New Language.  I can identify with those learning a new language and culture because I lived in Japan for two years.  
My two married children have given me  five grandchildren.  Unfortunately none of them live nearby.
