    On a Personal Note
    At a very early age, I knew that I wanted to be a teacher, a change agent, an inspiration to others. As a teacher of students with special needs, my dreams materialized into reality. It was at that time, that I came to truly believe that every student is capable of tasting the passion for learning. 

    As a Georgia Native and product of the Atlanta Public School System, I have always been committed to serving my community. As such, my service and commitment has been to Empower Every Girl, Every Day by challenging each CSKYWLA young lady academically through rigorous and relevant curriculum, creating learning opportunities that extend beyond the classroom, and inspiring them to move beyond their comfort zones in pursuit of personal goals. 

    As the beloved community of CSKYWLA continues the journey of developing globally competitive young leaders, I am most confident that they too will become change agents and their dreams bearing their names, will become realities.
