Your Purpose. Our Mission.

As a Charleston Southern University alumnus, I went to graduate school with the goal of teaching at a school like CSU. However, I never expected God to lead me back to teach at the very place that shaped me into who I am today. I strive to invest in my students in the same ways my CSU instructors challenged and mentored me.
