Greetings Titan family! I am a former student turned teacher. In 2016, I began working at NTHS and I am currently in my second-year of teaching. I graduated from the illustrious North Carolina A&T State University, followed by a master's degree in Special Education. I have a huge passion for education and children and I look forward to my continued career in education.

I just realized I have been a special educator for over 30 years. I enjoy the challenge. My family is from South Carolina, but I was born and raised right here in Baltimore. Prior becoming an educator, I was in the entertainment industry working as a vocalist. That was interesting. I love to travel out of the US, but I hate flying because I always manage to get on flights that have a lot of turbulence. The pandemic has put a stop to my travels. My less costly hobbies include reading and doing needle crafts. I still try to spend as much time as possible with my family. They are my first true love.

I am a mother of four children, three boys and one girl. My two oldest boys are United State Marines, my third son is very successful in Sales, and my daughter is completing her Senior year at Towson University. In my sixteen years of teaching experience, I have taught English, Reading, Alternative Education, and Special Education. One of my most memorable and exceptional experiences of a lifetime, was during the year between 2018-2019 when I taught English to the Afghanistan Air Force in Kabul, Afghanistan. Teaching abroad, in a war zone, opened opportunities for me that I'd never thought I'd experience in my life. I am forever grateful for this experience, for I will never forget the trials, tribulations, and complete success that I had undergone while living in Afghanistan. It afforded me the chance to work with and befriend people from all over the world who shared in this experience with me. I am a better mother, teacher, and person because of this incredible adventure. Furthermore, that opportunity opened other doors for me to travel to other countries which include: Kuwait, Dubai, Istanbul, Prague, Germany, France, and Canada. I have two passions in life that go hand and hand together. One is being a mother, and the other is being a teacher.
