I was born and raised in Kansas City, Missouri. I earned a Bachelor of Science Degree from Prairie View A&M University, and a Master of Arts in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Missouri @ Kansas City. In my spare time, I enjoy traveling and spending time with my family. I believe that all children can learn, and it is up to me to figure out the best way to help them. I like for my students to feel like they have a voice, and understand that it is not only my classoom , but our classroom where we will build a community of responsible, independent thinkers, that are able to problem solve and use their critical thinking skills "Great Teachers teach children HOW to think, not WHAT to think"
