Since 2017, I served as the Graduate Coordinator (GC) for the Call Me Mister Program at the College of Charleston as well as Charleston Southern University. In my role as GC, I assisted the coordinators with drafting bylaws, setting annual goals, and collaborating with other Call Me Mister cohorts in South Carolina. In 2011, I graduated and became a full-time elementary school teacher in Goose Creek, SC. I have been teaching fourth grade since I began teaching. In 2020, I was named Teacher of the Year at Mount Holly Elementary School. During the time as a member of the Berkeley County School District Teacher Forum, I collaborated to create digital resources, hybrid curriculum, and opportunities for teachers to adapt to the hybrid model.

I am a native of Charleston, South Carolina, and the youngest of three children. I married my college sweetheart Shakerra Freeman, and we have two children, Easton and Evelynn Freeman. I received my education in the public schools of Charleston County, graduating in 2004 from West Ashley High School. Seeking to further my education, I enrolled at Trident Technical College and later transferred to the College of Charleston where I graduated in 2011 with a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education. I later furthered my education returning to the College of Charleston graduating in 2018 with a Master of Education in Math and Science. I am currently earning my Doctoral degree in Leadership from Charleston Southern University.

Your Purpose. Our Mission.

As a mentor for the Call Me Mister Program, I feel it is important to lead and live by example. I serve as their encouragement and motivation when they feel as though they need someone to relate to. I am able to show them that it is possible to follow your calling and your passion.
