I was a social studies teacher for 40 years and loved that job. I am very passionate about teaching social studies because I love the subject matter, and I love seeing students turn-on to their own history. I am a part-time employee of Coastal Carolina Community College where I have been teaching English grammar and vocabulary enrichment to enlisted marines at Camp Lejeune for the past 4 1/2 years. I love working with the marines who are highly disciplined and eager. After tours in Iraq and Afghanistan, they are ready to mentally challenge themselves and move forward with pursuit for a college degree. I love to see their determination to prove themselves as college students. They are a true inspiration to me. One of my classes presented me with a plaque that reads: "We would like to thank you for your adept instruction." The college said that had never happened before.
I have a degree in social studies from East Carolina University and have almost a masters in education from UNC-W. Before retiring as a high school teacher, I was called on numerous occasions to be a reader for the NC Competency Social Studies test. I have also been the director of student interns. When teaching in Burlington City Schools, I fielded teacher interns from Elon College and UNC-Greensboro. When teaching at Lejeune High School, I fielded teacher interns from UNC-W. I believe teaching is my calling and a profession given to me by God. He has given me a love for the subject matter and for the students themselves.
