Degrees and Certifications:
I am a native of Charlotte, NC, and an East Mecklenburg Senior High graduate. I attended UNC Charlotte and graduated with a BA in History and Dance Education K-12 in 2002. I also attended Kingston University in London England as a foreign exchange student while studying history. After graduation, I taught at Pine Forrest High in Fayetteville, NC, and at Apex Middle School in Raleigh, NC. In 2007, I left North Carolina to obtain my MA in History at UNF in Jacksonville, Florida, where I was a graduate teaching assistant. I taught World Civilization I and interned at the History Museum under the Head curator in Jacksonville. After graduation, I taught at MLK Middle School in Charlotte, NC before the US Navy took my family and myself to Spain. I had the wonderful opportunity to teach elementary at the Department of Defense School, DGF. Returning to the United States in 2015, the US Navy took my family to San Diego, California, where I continued to follow my passion for teaching. I taught at Gompers Preparatory Academy. There, I taught several grade levels, 7th, 8th, and 11th. I have had the unique privilege to teach a wide variety of students ranging from Kindergarten to college across our wonderful country and to service member families overseas. I believe my experiences and travels give me a unique perspective on life and teaching. I strive to provide a comprehensive world view to my students that challenge them to think for themselves and beyond their familiar borders. I love to bring a personal touch to my lessons. Through my travels with the US Navy, I have been to many of the places I now teach about. I love to add personal touches from my own world experiences and those of my students and their families. I encourage the families of my students to be involved in my lessons and share their experiences so that we, as a community, can give students the best education from as many viewpoints as possible. I look forward to a unique and exciting school year!
