Hey 6th grade scholars and families!

This has definitely been a year to add to the history books!! However, we preservered and got through it together. As we close out this school year, remember to always be safe, respectful, and responsible. See you next school year as a migthy 7th grade Gryphon. I will be on summer break along with you all so I will have limited email access. I will return to the office on Monday, August 16, 2021.

Greetings 6th grade scholars! I am thrilled to be starting my 6th year as a mighty Gryphon and as your School Counselor for the 2020-2021 school year. 

I was born and raised in Los Angeles, Californina. I am a graduate of Howard University (go Bison) in Washington, DC. Here, I earned my BS in Pschology and M.Ed in Guidance and Counselng. I moved to Charlotte, NC in 2015. I love the Spring/Summer weather in NC because it reminds me  so much of California!

I am entering into my 18th year as a School Counselor where I spent 12 years as an Elementary School Counselor in Maryland. I look forward to meeting you all during your online classes this year. Although this is not the way you might have wanted to start a new phase in your life; entering middle school, I assure you we will get through this together and have one of the BEST school years ever!
