I have been an artist all of my life and an educator for about 11 years. I obtained my undergraduate degree from Kentucky State University: a B.A. in Studio Arts. From there, I continued on to get my Child Development Associate through a partnership with OVEC and the University of Louisville. At the same time, I began my graduate studies at the University of the Cumberlands. I will have my MAT in Art Education P-12 in December. I will also be receiving my professional teaching certification for art and early childhood. In January, I will begin my doctoral studies (tentatively at Walden University) to receive my PhD in Educational Leadership and Management P-20. A brief background in my teaching history: I started my teaching career in high school when I was hired on as a Teacher Aid working with the after school care class at a church. When I moved from Alabama to Kentucky for school, I got a job at Aramark providing meals for college students and the meal plans for the children in daycare. Since graduating from undergrad, I have worked at 5 different schools between Alabama and Kentucky and tutored many students. I enjoy working with children and helping them to achieve their goals. In my spare time, I love to draw and paint, read, take nature walks and spend time with my family.
