My favorite part of working with kids/APS is showing them, that, they too can achieve their goals and aspirations. As a graduate of Atlanta Public Schools (Beecher Hills Elem. School, 1987; Southwest-Young Middle School, 1990; & B.E. Mays High School, 1995), I proudly share my educational and professional story, during course introductions, which always includes my gratitude for the outstanding educators that had guided me along the way to achieve my goals.
