I was born in Washington, DC. However, I lived and taught in Montgomery County, Maryland before getting married and moving back to North Carolina three years ago. I went to Duke Ellington School of Arts High School in Georgetown, (D.C.) Afterwards, I graduated from North Carolina A & T State University, (Go Aggies!) and Howard University Graduate School. Additionally, I have attended High Point University and Trinity College to advance my education and increase my knowledge in educational leadership. I have earned advanced degrees and certifications in education, because I love to learn! Furthermore, I have held a variety of positions in the education arena, but my biggest passion has been to inspire young minds at the middle and high school level.
