Greetings! I welcome you to the 2023/2024 school year with the warmest and sincerest regards for success and achievement. I am grateful for the opportunity to work with your child, you and others in ensuring that our students receive the best education possible. The 7th Grade's theme, "The Learning Zone" is important because our main goal is LEARNING along with teaching at Gateway Middle School of Math, Science and Technology.
I am a product of SLPS (K-12) YAY!!! After an illustrious career in finance and business, I made a life-changing decision to go after my dream - to become a teacher. I worked full-time and attended Harris-Stowe University full-time simultaneously. I graduated summa cum laude as a non-traditional student with several academic and scholastic honors. In addition, I earned the Most Outstanding Student Award and Class Marshall for the College of Education at the University of Missouri-St. Louis while graduating with an M.S.Ed. I obtained an Educational Specialist degree, and completed doctoral studies at UMSL, also.
In my education professional career, I have served in various positions including Department Chair, middle school district AVID Coordinator, Dean of Curriculum and Instruction, Head of School, and Administrator in the Normandy School District, as well as a Professor of History at Harris-Stowe-State University. I have been recognized as Teacher of the Year, Innovative Educator of the Year, and Who's Who Among American Teachers, along with other awards. My most prized acknowledgement has come from students I previously taught, who come back to say, "Thank you", and from those former students whom I encounter living life and being responsible citizens.
Be safe. Be well. Be blessed.
