I am from Saint Louis, MO. I have been in Saint Louis Public School District(SLPS) for 10+ years. The roles that I have possessed include: Substitute Teacher (SLPS/Hazelwood School District), Student Teacher (Hazelwood School District), Business Education Teacher (Central VPA High School, Cleveland NJROTC High School), Dean of Students (Clyde C. Miller High School), Assistant Principal (Clyde C. Miller High School), Principal (AESM @ L'Ouverture). I am a graduate of Ladue Horton Watkins High School. When I graduated High School I attended Southeast Missouri State University (SEMO) my freshman year before transferring to Harris-Stowe State College. I graduated from Harris-Stowe State University with a degree in Business Administration. After graduating college I found my passion in education. I realized I love to watch students learn. I decided to return to school to earn my Master's Degree (MAT) from Lindenwood University. While at Lindenwood I earned two Master's, one in Teaching and the other ins School Administration. I also earned three certifications: Business Education, Special Education, School Administration. While teaching Business Education courses in SLPS I became interested in leadership. Shortly after I began seeking leadership opportunities within this district. I was selected to be a member of a few leadership cohorts in the district. All of these opportunities have led me here to AESM to support young scholars.
