TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am a certified educator with 16 years building and 2 years central office level experience. I have an extensive background in teaching, leadership, curriculum and professional development including serving as the founding member of a K-8, three middle and one high school. I have successfully mentored, coached and supervised adults as a founding principal, consultant, middle and high school teacher at two KIPP schools and the founding principal of Building 21 High School--part of a world-class education movement committed to eliminating the achievement and opportunity gaps between children living in economically distressed and highly resourced environments.

MY TEACHING STYLE

As a middle and high school teacher, my classroom serves as a microcosm of the larger society. Students use their power to take risks, learn from failures, solve simple and complex problems, celebrate successes and most importantly encourage one another. Overall, my goal is to create a learning environment that is flexible, engaging and purposeful: Students are able to actively participate in whole, small and one-on-one group activities, access a wide variety of resources that cater to their different learning styles, and work within a physical space that is organized to accommodate both independent and collaborative work.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I helped my students earn the highest scores in school history on the state writing exam. In 2010, I published my first chapter entitled From Night John to Sundiata: A Heritage Based-Approach to Engaging Students in Literacy from Teacher College Press’s Practicing What We Teach: How Culturally Responsive Literacy Classrooms Make a Difference. I am also featured in Addressing Culture Makes a Difference in Bridging Literacy and Equity: The Essential Guide to Social Equity Teaching. Overall, witnessing my teachers' and students' lives change has been the greatest reward.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I have a Bachelor of Arts in African American Studies; a Masters in Elementary Education (Curriculum, Instruction and Technology); and most recently a Masters in Educational Leadership (Administration and Supervision).

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

My other passions include writing, history, and travel. Currently, I am working on a history project entitled Liberation Arts: US History Through the Eyes of Underrepresented Groups. My love of history and travel has landed me in numerous cities in North America, Europe, Canada, China, Africa and Cuba!
