I am a passionate educator who believes that education can change the direction of your life!
I have been an educator for 10 years now; however, I wasn't always an educator.
I was a struggling learner throughout my high school years. I graduated in 1992 and had very little desire to go to college. After obtaining some dead-end jobs, I attended a local community college and found professors that encouraged me, embraced me, and supported me to believe I could achieve my goals. I obtained my AA in General studies and my CNA license in the first 2 years. From that moment on, I went on to obtain a bachelor degree in business, a Master degree in Education, and I am currently working on my Specialist Degree in Education Leadership.
I have learned that being a struggling learner does not define who we are!
