Degrees and Certifications:

Mr. Eric Dean

I am entering my 17th year teaching and the fourth year at LEMS. I was born and raised in California, where I graduated from Mater Dei High School. I earned my BA in English from San Francisco State University and earned my English teaching credential (k-12) from the University of San Francisco. I taught English for 11 years at Archbishop Hanna High School in Sonoma, CA. 

Since moving to South Carolina, I have taught at New Hope Carolinas, York Comprehensive High School, and Camden Military Academy.

My wife of 11+ wonderful years, Kerry, and I live here in Lugoff. We adopted a rescue German Shepherd, Abby. She has mastered such tricks as shake, high-five, turn, and bark like a maniac. But by far, Abby's greatest talent is shedding all year long.
