It is my pleasure to teach the Gifted and Talented students at Continental Colony Elementary. I am a native of Atlanta, GA. I currently reside in Union City, Georgia. I have been married for 7 years to my wonderful husband Duane. We have a daughter Aleka and a son Grayson. In my spare time I enjoy spending quality time with my family. My hobbies include singing in my church choir, arts and crafts, and watching high school bands and dancelines.
I began my educational journey in Atlanta Public Schools. I graduated from Benjamin Banneker High School in College Park, GA. After high school, I attended Morris Brown College and earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Education. Shortly after, I began my teaching career at Cleveland Avenue Elementary where I once attended. I have been teaching in Atlanta Public Schools for 11 years. This is my fifth year at Continental Colony and second year as the Gifted and Talented teacher. I hold Reading and Gifted Endorsements and a Master’s of Education in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) from Grand Canyon University. I had the honor of being named the 2009 Teacher of Year for CCES.
