I was born and raised in Chicago, IL . I have worked in education for more than 19 years. My educational career began in Minneapolis, MN as a Special Education Assistant. I worked as an Instructional Assistant with the District 279 in Osseo, Minnesota before relocating to North Carolina to attend North Carolina Central University to obtain my Masters Degree in Special Education. While attending North Carolina Central University, I was hired as an Exceptional Children Teacher with the Wayne County School system before coming to work as a general education teacher for Duplin County schools.
I currently live in Wayne County, NC with my younger daughter (Jimella), as my older daughter (LaShannen) lives, works and attends school at North Carolina Central University in Durham, NC.
I am excited to be working with the 2nd grade team at Rose Hill-Magnolia School where OUR Eagles fly high!
