Mount Pleasant is home to wind, wildlife, waves, and best of all, Wando High School. The teenage population is BOOMING around here and we all want to keep them safe on the roads. Whether the little darlings are cooking up a day trip to the beach with their friends, or dreaming of a drive over the beautiful Ravenel Bridge, we'll make sure they're ready to roll, competently and confidently. (Yes, mom, hang in there - we can do this! We'll have them running errands for you before you know it!) Call Craig Whitman at (843) 872-1141. (Does your teenager have ADHD?

Instructor Brad Smith teaches everyone's favorite subject, Algebra 2. His main passion is hanging out with his beautiful wife and baby boy, but when he has free time, he helps out with basketball at Wando. Brad was a bass player in a band you've definitely heard of called Kooty and the Rollfish back in the day at Presbyterian College. He wants your kids to be safe on the road and he wants to be the one to show them how!
Franchisee/instructor Craig Whitman is a water-skier, a runner, and has a couple of small business ventures. He and his family are members of East Cooper Baptist Church. He is married to a saint and has two teenage boys who keep him busier than is reasonable. He loves Excel spreadsheets and knows all about teenagers from first-hand experience with his own two boys and is up for the challenge of teaching yours to drive.
Instructor Jason Brisini teaches AP Human Geography and is the Social Studies Department Chair at Wando High School. During his time at Wando, he has been lucky enough to coach baseball, football, and currently coaches golf. Because all of the other instructors have pictures with their children, he found it necessary to use a picture of him and his animal child, Abby. One of his proudest accomplishment in life is being a certified bus driver, so he is excited to teach teenagers how to master driving so everyone is safe.
Instructor Michael Waldkirch is a teacher and coach at Wando High School, where he has been for 5 years. He coaches football and teaches Probability and Statistics. One of the few teachers that is better than him would be his wife. He is a huge Clemson fan and graduate. He looks forward to helping your teenager become a safe driver.
Instructor Roger is a Project Manager at an architectural engineering firm in Mount Pleasant. He is a very patient father of three daughters (two in college, and his oldest is a teacher at Wando HS). Roger, his wife, and two Jack Russell Terriers relocated from Minneapolis to Mount Pleasant in the Spring of 2016. After 20 years of living in the frozen North, it was time to move South! Roger's wife will tell you that he likes to shop and watch sappy movies on Netflix with her, and he loves fresh salads. In reality though, he enjoys walking on the beach, working in his wood shop, and he prefers a fat and juicy burger over a salad any day. Roger looks forward to working with your son or daughter on their driving skills, and he will probably try to pass along a little wisdom gained from years of life experience.
Instructor Kaith Young has been a Social Studies teacher at Wando for the last 3 years. After graduating from the College of Charleston, he returned to his hometown to teach, but couldn't stay away from Charleston for too long! At Wando, he sponsors the Beta Club, and supports several other student-led clubs. When not teaching, Kaith can usually be found on the golf course, where he's been playing since he could pick up a club. He has been teaching, coaching and working with high school teens for nearly a decade, and wants to make sure they stay safe when they are behind the wheel and on the road.
