A proud graduate of Anacostia High School and Howard University in Washington, DC, I recently completed my PhD in Education, and I currently reside and teach in Harford County, Maryland. School year 2013-2014 was my 20th year in the classroom! Over the years, I have had the pleasure of holding several leadership positions in urban and suburban districts, but my most memorable years have been in the classroom with middle and high school students. I love the challenge of developing engaging lessons that are aligned to the standards and seeing my students have fun while they learn. It's challenging work, but spending time with family and friends, and shopping keep me balanced.
