As a Dallas native, I attended Dallas ISD in my early years and then went on to graduate from Greenhill School. I ventured off to Hampton University, in Hampton, Virginia, for college and then returned to Dallas to be home near my family, especially my younger sisters and older brother.
I taught in DallasISD for 7 years, WylieISD for 1 year, Cedar Hill ISD for 5 years, and the 2019 - 2020 school year will be my 2nd year at Duncanville High School Collegiate Academy and my 15th year in education.
In my free time, I enjoy anything Happy Planner related, reading, doing DIY projects, watching Hallmark, and volunteering at my church. I am also a pround member of Tau Beta Sigma National Honorary Band Sorority, Inc. and Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc.
My philosophy of education, in short, is that by creating an environment that fosters learning and creates a mutual respect for differences, my goal is to leave no mystery in the eyes of students. Everyone can learn. While the intellectual capabilities of some outweigh those of others, everyone has the ability to learn something new or different to increase their depth of knowledge. I believe that it is my responsibility to acknowledge the individual needs of each scholar and the entire community of learners. In order to do this, I must present information in a manner that reaches all types of learners. It is my hope that the learning environment in my classroom will be the gateway to a desire for lifelong learning. I encourage scholars to strive for the highest.
I look forward to a fun and exciting year.
