I earned my Bachelor of Science degree from Delaware State University in 1990 with a specialization in Clothing and Textiles and Fashion Merchandising. I received my Masters in Education degree from Wilmington University specializing in Educational Leadership in August 1999. I knew from the age of thirteen I wanted to become an educator. I began my career working part-time evenings in the banking industry for ten years while attending school. I was a substitute teacher at my Alma mater during the day. I wanted to teach but could not decide if I wanted a middle school setting or high school setting. My ultimate goal is to become an administrator. The education field never left my mind. I taught adult continuing education classes at my local high school for two years. It brought me joy to assist adults with learning a new skill, applying that skill, and producing a finished product.
One thing that has remained a constant is my passion for teaching. It does not matter if it is showing my niece how to peel potatoes, hem a pair of slacks or explaining to a student how theorists play a part in teaching today. Every student deserves a chance to express themselves in the classroom. I am happy to have the opportunity to teach in a school where students enjoy coming to my class, are active participants, and take responsibility for their learning.
As I go into my eighteenth year as an educator, one thing is constant, "I love what I do!"
