For over twenty years, I have striven to be an excellent educator, and I received my Bachelor of Science, Business & Management Degree from National-Louis University. Realizing the best teachers always learn, I pursued my Masters of Art in Teaching and Educational Specialist Degree from Webster University. Additionally, my education work continued with a Masters of Art in School Administration while finishing my Doctorate studies this year at Maryville University (December 2020).
My educational teaching career began at Agape Christian Academy as a kindergarten teacher in the summer of 1999. The following school year, 2000, I started working at St. Louis Public Schools as a substitute teacher. In this capacity, I served students long term in grades, kindergarten, second grade, eighth grade, and on the high school level. As a certified Special Education teacher, I worked with students at Big Picture Middle School, Gateway, and Roosevelt High School. Other positions that I have held in the SLPS schools are Instructional Facilitator, Academic Instructional Coach, and Summer School Principal for Middle Schools. I also served as a Charter School Principal in Kansas City, Missouri, and operated a home daycare.
I am a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., Past Chair of EMBODI, an African American Male organization sponsored by Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. and a member of the International Awareness Committee. My church affiliation is Friendly Temple Baptist Church, serving as a Personalized Academic Student Success Ministry (PASS), devoted to assisting students with their homework assignments. I am also a member of the National Sorority of Phi Delta Kappa, Inc. and The National Council of Negro Women, Inc.
My mission in education and life is to help improve the lives of youth through stewardship, community service, and education. My life is centered on providing opportunities for youth through education, social growth, and emotional growth. My mission also includes building a reliable and accountable team by understanding each member of the staff and the expertise they bring to the table.
The success of any school depends not on one person, but on the team that one person develops. Collaborative, dedicated, caring, honesty, integrity, purpose-driven, and communicator are attributes that describe my educational abilities.
