I attended Columbia College and received my Bachelors of Arts in French.  I completed a semester of study abroad in Angers, France at the L'Universite Catholique de l'Ouest.  I received my Masters in French from the University of California at Santa Barbara.  I completed my certification in Spanish.  I am also certified in Gifted and Talented education. 


I began my teaching career at JHS in 1996.  I moved to Columbia, SC for 2 years and taught French at Harbison West Elementary and at Summit Parkway Middle School.  Upon my return to Johnsonville, I taught for 2 years at Marion High School.  I have  been back at Johnsonville High for 16 years.


I grew up in Columbia, SC.  I have traveled to France four times and to Spain twice.  I love languages and different cultures.  Paris is my favorite place to visit!  I am married to Bryan Chandler.  I have 2 children, Bryson and Elizabeth.  I truly enjoy teaching!  I can't imagine doing anything else!
