Subjects Taught


I attended Wilson High School and graduated with honors in 1977. After attended South Carolina State University from 1977- 1981 and earned a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Music Education. I got married in 1984 and had five beautiful children: Terlisa (33 years old), Kenneth, Jr. (28 years old), Amber (25 years old), Quinn (20 years old) and Elijah (14 years old). 


I taught for nine years in Florence School District One, and two years in Greenwood School District 50. I'm presently employed in Orangeburg Consolidated School District Five at Sheridan and Brookdale Elementary Schools as a music teacher. This year will allow me to have a total of 25 years of teaching experience. Later I graduated from Cambridge College in Boston, Massachusetts in 2003 with a Master’s degree in Educational Administration. I also have Practicum experience of over 500 hours with her former principal, Xennie Weeks.
