Teacher Message:

WAKE-UP EVERYBODY! is the title of an old-school jam that expounds in part that "its time to teach a new way."  Well, the time has come in teaching and learning for us to do things differently.  We are interacting virtually while in the midst on the COVID-19 pandemic.   As I welcome you to your last year in middle school - EIGHTH GRADE - we prepare you for a more challenging and invigorating learning path.

 Be safe.  Be well.  Be blessed.

Biography:

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 a M.S.Ed.   I obtained an Educational Specialist degree and doctoral  studies at UMSL, too.

In my education professional career, I have served in various positions including Department Chair, 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, Who's Who Among American Teachers and Staff/Faculty Member of the Month.

After a brief hiatus from the very noble profession of teaching, I returned to teaching in 2016 working with fifth and sixth grade students at Columbia Elementary School for the Gifted.  I am grateful to be among the stakeholders of Gateway Middle School - students, parents, staff and community.
