I have been a teacher since 2003, teaching both in a classroom, an interventionist, and an Academic Coach.
I believe that teachers are guides in the lives of the students. Even on our worst day, we may be a student's best part of the day.
I worked through and obtained my Doctoral degree in Leadership and Policy Studies. Although this in itself was an accomplishment, the bigger accomplishment was that my family still likes me after all those long papers and tests! :)
I obtained my undergraduate degree from Norfolk State University in Virginia. My masters is from Christian Brothers University in Memphis and my doctorate degree from the University of Memphis. Go Tigers!
I have been married for 22 years, have three beautiful children, and two dogs.
