"Greetings! I have been a PBS TeacherLine facilitator since March of 2006. I have facilitated national courses as well as local courses for my home state of South Carolina in the areas of technology and reading/language arts. Each and every course I have facilitated has provided me with a rich and rewarding teaching and learning experience!
My affiliation with TeacherLine (both as a facilitator and student) has also presented me with valuable knowledge to help me in my role as a high school media specialist here in South Carolina. I am certified in South Carolina in the areas of English, media specialist, and on-line teaching."
her Masters of Library and Information Science degree from the University
of South Carolina with her post graduate work focusing almost exclusively
on technology. "I
enjoy reading a good novel and love the summers when I can kick
back on the beach and read. I also like to shop and work outside
in my yard. I hope that you find your TeacherLine course to be a
productive learning experience!"
"I have been with TeacherLine since 2004. I am from OH and I earned my BS in zoology at The Ohio State University. I went on to earn my Masters in Educational Administration at Baldwin Wallace College (also in OH). I am married to a Marine and we have two sons. We move often as a Marine family, but at this moment we call eastern NC home. I currently teach gifted students online, but I have taught at the Elementary, High School and Middle School levels earlier in my career (math and science).
I have truly enjoyed working with TeacherLine and I hope you do too!
The flexibility is wonderful and the caliber of
content is top notch. I have been fortunate to work in distance
education for years now, first with Educate Online and now with
PBS. I cannot think of a more convenient way for educators to earn
CEUs or graduate credit. I truly enjoy the interaction with
learners and I know they gain valuable insight from each course."
"I am in my 31st year of teaching social studies at a rural public high school and live on the shores of Lake Murray, SC. I teach AP US History and AP US Government and Politics and a variety of other social studies. Originally from LaGrange, GA, I earned a BA degree from Auburn University, an M.Ed. degree from the University of South Carolina, and National Board Certification in secondary social studies.
I have been a PBS facilitator for almost five years, and I love it! A lifelong learner, I have been able to collaborate and grow along with fellow teachers from across the country. The discussion board is amazing because it allows us to share successful classroom experiences and ideas."
Greetings from Mount Pleasant, South Carolina! I have been facilitating for PBS TeacherLine since 2009, and I absolutely love it. I like to say that I am a learner as well as a facilitator in each of the courses that I have facilitated. Collaborating with folks from all over the world is one of the best features of online learning.
I'm a married, mother of one, teacher from Mount Pleasant, South Carolina. Most of my free time is spent with the many members of our family. We love to spend time just talking, barbecuing, scrapbooking, and watching our kids play sports. I live near the ocean so I do enjoy a great day at the beach with a terrific book. I teach second grade at a local elementary school in the public school system. I have been teaching for over 30 years. The subjects I have taught are 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, K-8th grade gifted and talented, and K-8th grade technology classes.
I received my bachelor’s degree from The College of Charleston, and my masters from The Citadel. I completed my plus 30 in literacy and elementary education. I hope to meet you in a PBS TeacherLine course!

"I have taught grades 4K-12th and currently live in Mt. Pleasant, SC (right outside of Charleston). My degrees are in elementary education, gifted education, math, and technology. I have two sons who both love the computer and are constantly teaching me new things! :)"

format and flexibility of TeacherLine courses drew me in, but the
discussion boards and content kept me coming back! I enjoy exchanging
ideas with teachers all over the country. Its incredible to
feel the connectedness of teachers all over the country. TeacherLine
is an amazing community!
"I am a 6th-grade science teacher and an avid technology advocate. I have been my school's webmaster for 16 years. While teaching, training (competitive swimming), and attending Furman University, I also earned +30 hours in instructional technology. I do not have a hometown as I am an "Air Force brat." I suppose this fostered my love of travel."
Charlotte has facilitated PBS courses since 2005. She earned her Elementary Education B.A. from the University of South Carolina, Upstate, and her M.A. in Middle Level Science from Furman University. While working on her masters degree, she began taking online TeacherLine courses and earned her +30 almost at the same time. More recently Charlotte became a National Board Certified Teacher in Early Adolescent Science. She is an advocate for using technology in the classroom as a tool for student understanding in all subject areas and frequently presents conference sessions on various technology tools.
"The best thing about facilitating TeacherLine courses is the flexibility to manage my own time. The online environment is supportive, collaborative and enjoyable. I get to meet classroom teachers from all over the country (sometimes other countries, Ethiopia right now...) and realize that we all have the same basic questions and concerns about teaching today."
"I am from Gilbert, South Carolina. Gilbert is a small rural town. I have lived here for 26 years. I was originally from Columbia, South Carolina, and attended the University of South Carolina - home of the fighting Gamecocks! I have a BS degree in Biology and an MAT specializing in Biology. I have level two technology certification from my district, gifted and talented certification, and my National Board Certification in early adolescence science.
I am starting my 26th year of teaching in a traditional high school classroom. Several years ago, I gave middle school science a try. One year of hormonal 7th graders was enough to send me back to the high school. I started out teaching in Aiken County at small rural schools. After eight years, I went to a large newly built high school in Lexington district #1. While at this school, I had the opportunity to work three years in a 9th grade transition program. I really enjoyed the program and the success we felt with our students. I am currently teaching in the school that both my two older children have graduated from. I have 8 more years before my youngest will cross the graduation stage and I plan to graduate and move into retirement then.
I am happily married, and in May 2018, my husband Tony and I will celebrate 27 years! In addition to my 3 children, I also have some furry babies. Two cats, Fluffy and Pumpkin, get along great with our newest addition a chocolate lab named Loki. He is really the god of mischief! I also enjoy teaching adult education classes two nights a week and have several homebound students throughout the school year. My life seems very busy but I do find time to read an occasional good book - especially over the summer.
I have been facilitating PBS classes for 8 years and LOVE IT! TeacherLine courses allow you to work in a virtual classroom setting with other professionals from around the country. Sharing ideas, struggles, and successes on current, relevant topics. That makes for an AWESOME learning experience for the teachers and translates into success for the students!"

"The facilitator wrote announcements each week that were personalized for our class. In addition, her comments on the grades page were very specific and relevant to the the project completed. Each week I found myself looking forward to what [she] had to say about my projects as I value her thoughts given her expertise in this subject matter."
