• It is an honor to be a member of the Perkerson Wildcat Family as your Assistant Principal. I love my chosen career! It is an educational journey that keeps me living to learn and learning to live. By doing so, progress is always in view.

    I have previously served as a Middle School Mathematics Teacher, Instructional Coach, Leadership Support Specialist and Assistant Principal. My profession enables me to collaborate with parents, community leaders and civic organizations who provide resources needed to promote student success.

    I enjoy singing, traveling, reading, and spending quality time with family and friends. My mother is a retired APS Media Specialist, and my brother is an Educator on the college level. As a proud graduate of Atlanta Public Schools, I am committed to making our students at Perkerson Elementary a top priority. Our students are our future!

    We believe. We can. We will.
