Becky Dingle

Bio: I was born a Tarheel but ended up a Sandlapper. My grandparents were cotton farmers in Laurens, South Carolina and it was in my grandmother’s house that my love of storytelling began beside an old Franklin stove. When I graduated from Laurens High School, I attended Erskine College (Due West of what?) and would later get my Masters Degree in Education/Social Studies from Charleston Southern. I am presently an adjunct professor/clinical supervisor at CSU and have also taught at the College of Charleston. For 28 years I taught Social Studies through storytelling. My philosophy matched Rudyard Kipling’s quote: “If history were taught in the form of stories, it would never be forgotten.” Today I still spread this message through workshops and presentations throughout the state. The secret of success in teaching social studies is always in the story. I want to keep learning and being surprised by life…it is the greatest teacher. Like Kermit said, “When you’re green you grow, when you’re ripe you rot.”

    Dear Becky,
    I so enjoyed your Sunrise/Sunset post. Kelly was my sister, and I am so amazed by all the people she touched in her too short life. Her mother put it best though saying that this was her journey. We feel it was too short, but we know God has a plan. Thank you for sharing your thoughts and memories of Kelly. She is free and happy, smiling that beautiful smile now.

      Charlotte…your sweet message completely made my day. I felt honored to be able to let others know how important it is to recognize special individuals who add sunlight to other people’s worlds…and that is exactly what your sister Kelly did. She always came into my classroom with a big smile on her face and excited about the lesson.

      I remember thinking that I wish I could take just a dash of that sunlight to sprinkle on so many students who seemed bored with everything in their lives. It made me sad to see so many young people so apathetic at such a young age. But not our Kelly….for what I remember…her love of life only grew along with her. The world went a little dimmer when Kelly’s light went out here on earth…but heaven is glowing brighter for her entrance.

      To a special student along my path…Kelly Morgan.
