Hello! I'm thrilled to be your 5th grade ELA and Social Studies teacher this year!. I have a Bachelors of Science in Biology and a Minor in African World Studies. I have a Masters in Education in Teaching and Learning. I come from a family of educators and pastors. I have been in the education field for more than 10 years in various capacities such as: Paraprofessional, Director of Children's Ministry, K-11th grade Math/ELAR teacher for Sylvan Learning Center, 6th Grade Social Studies teacher and as an Elementary ELAR/SS teacher and team lead. Every experience has given me better insight into reaching students in diverse ways.
I believe in active and intentional learning. My teaching and learning philosophy is simplistic and purposeful in it's approach. I'm excited to learn and grow with all of you this year!
