    Salutations Patrick Henry Families!
    Welcome back to school. It is officially first quarter and time for the learning to commence.I am eager to welcome my scholars and their families to an amazing new year of learning, growing, and building together.
    Ways to start of the year right:
    • Please make sure scholars are well rested and ready to learn.
    • School doors open at 7:45am and breakfast is served.

    For instruction to be successful, please make sure

    • Students are at school by 8am to get a healthy breakfast
    • To check student backpacks and parent email for important events, days when students do not have school, and resources available to our families.
    I believe that teaching students today is the best way to affect the future. It is important that every student learn, in order to help them to develop into productive citizens, equipped to be successful adults after school. Preparing them to become independent adults is the most important aspect of being an educator today. I will do everything in my power to impact young lives and build a desire to love learning and become independent learners now and in their futures. I believe very strongly that, as an educator, it is important to continue to pursue education and professional development, in order to stay on the forefront of teaching and innovations and developments in the field of education. I also believe that it takes a village to raise a child and I am counting on the support and involvement of my students' parents and families, in order to work together to educate the whole child.

    I was born in East St. Louis, IL and am the first of twelve children to graduate from college. I have taken an interest in wanting to be a teacher since 3rd grade, when my teacher showed me that she cared about me when I lost my father. Since then, I have been determined to be that teacher for my students. Now that I am a parent, it is extremely important for me to make sure I can teach my students to their utmost ability level because that I was what I expect from my children's future teachers.

      I am a product of the Cahokia school district. I received my Bachelor's degree from Harris-Stowe State University, in Saint Louis and recently received my Master's degree in Special Education from Northcentral University in Arizona. I am now seeking an Educational Specialist certification. I feel that I need to continue to pursue my education in order to become the best teacher I can be.
