My experience includes teaching math for two years in secondary education at Greer High School in South Carolina. I have been teaching at the university level since 2021.
I came to North Greenville University originally as a student in pursuit of a degree in Secondary Mathematics Education, still not fully convinced that teaching was what God had called me to do. I had been very successful in math as a high school student and I loved serving in my youth group, so teaching math seemed to be a natural next step. I met professors along the way that encouraged me and were able to speak to the teacher in me. As a junior in one of my high school placements and after spending a few years as a student coordinator of the Math Tutoring Lab at NGU, I finally realized that I did actually love teaching and knew without a doubt that this was an area God had gifted me in.
I graduated as a licensed secondary mathematics teacher and started teaching at a local high school. I made wonderful connections with students that I will forever treasure, further confirming that the Lord has called me to be a teacher. While teaching, I decided to pursue my Master’s degree in Secondary Mathematics Education, knowing that my true passion lies not only in mathematics but also in teaching, which ultimately allowed me to come to North Greenville as a math professor.
In many ways, North Greenville is like a second home, and I am so happy to be back as a teacher now. I love that as a professor at North Greenville I am not only allowed but expected to teach math from a Christian perspective. Teaching at NGU combines my love of math with my heart for loving and serving students and I am excited to get to do that every day.
