"The dream begins with a teacher who believes in you, who tugs and pushes and leads you to the next plateau, sometimes poking you with a sharp stick called 'truth'."

----Dan Rather

As a Diverse Learners Instructor and Department Chair, I seek to ensure that all students are receiving an equitable education. My teaching philosophy begins with "All students can learn." I work with all administrators, teachers, clinicians and staff in the building to make sure that students are receiving the services needed to be successful in school and in life.

I have a degree in Bachelor of Arts degree in Liberal Arts from Chicago State University, a Master of Science in Integrated Marketing Communications from Roosevelt University and a Master of Education-Special Education from the University of Illinois at Chicago. In addition to these degrees, I began my post-secondary matriculation at Clark Atlanta University where I studied Mass Media Arts-Public Relations.

I am excited to have begun my teaching career at Sarah E. Goode STEM Academy and look forward to many years here ensuring that all students learn and achieve their dreams!
