My journey as a teacher began in 2001 when I left corporate American on a search for a career with more meaning. A few months later, I begin serving at Kimberley Elementary School as a long-term physical education substitute teacher. A few months later I realized that teaching was my calling. I attended Clark Atlanta University to obtain my teaching certification and the rest is history. After 13 years teaching in Fulton County Schools, my dream was to return home to APS. As a graduate of “The D.M. Therrell High School”, I have always thought it would be cool to return home to my school cluster.
I received my B.S. Degree Corporate Fitness/Rec. Management from the University of West Georgia. Over the years I pursed a M.S. Degree in Educational Leadership from Walden University and an Ed.S. Degree in Educational Leadership from Georgia College State University. I am an alumnus of the Benjamin E. Mays Aspiring Leaders Program and now I am delighted to continue serving children as a health teacher at Ralph J. Bunche Middle School. I believe our childrens’ wealth is their health. I look forward to implementing the vision of our new principal, Mr. Octavius Harris so that our children continue to soar academically, socially and emotionally.
