It is an honor to serve as your Instructional Support Specialist for the remainder of the 2020-2021 school year and beyond. As a veteran of the United States Army, discipline, honor and integrity are instilled internally, and play a major role in my approaches to life. This is my 13th year in education starting in my home state North Carolina (ECPPS), then Virginia (SPS) and now my retiring state, Georgia (Gwinnett and Richmond Counties). My experience in education includes, tutor, paraprofessional, teacher (face to face and virtual), team leader and instructional coach. Having exposure to ESOL, special education, and regular education populations in addition to low performing populations have all equipped me with knowing how to adjust to any learning environment. I look forward to stepping into a role that is all so familiar, yet new in the same token. I am excited to learn new concepts and share knowledge as I serve the Hephzibah High community.
The learning cycle is an on-going process that stimulates growth.
