I am so excited about returning to RCTCM for my 6th year. I am looking forward to this year and what it will bring for not only our seniors, but every other student entering the building.
I graduated from Tuskegee University with a Bachelor's in Social Work (BSW). I worked at the Department of Family and Children Services for 14 years where I worked with abused and neglected children. I enjoyed being able to help chidlren that were helpless and needed a voice. After so many years, my work took me out of the field and no longer working directly with children. This is what I enjoyed most so I decided to find something that could allow me to still teach, however work with children once again. This is when I decided that teaching/education would be ideal. I went back to school and earned my Masters in Secondary Education. This was the best thing I could have done for my life. I LOVE teaching!
My first teaching job was at Ursula Collins K - 8 School where I taught middle school Engllish and Social Studies for 6 years. This was an awesome experience that helped me to grow and develop a futher passion for teaching. After Ursula Collins closed, I was blessed to have the opportunity to teach at the Richmond County Technical Career Magnet School. I have been teaching ELA since the 2014-2015 school year. During my tenure here, I have also been the yearbook advisor.
I am married. We have three daughters; ages 26, 25(attends ASU), and 20(attends Georgia Southern). We have one son; age 18, he graduated high school this year; and will be attending Georgia College and State on a basketball/academic scholarship. We also have two grandchildren; ages 5 & 6. I am very proud of my children. Family is very important to me and I hope that each of my students understand that they too are my family.
My hobbies include sports, reading, traveling, and going to the movies. My faviorite pro footbal team is the Pittsbugh Steerlers. My favorite pro basketball team is the Atlanta Hawks; however I love to follow and watch LeBron James, Kawhi Leonard, and Chris Paul. My favorite college basketball team is UNC and football is UGA.
