I am a DC native, and a proud graduate of DC public and charter schools. I attended the University of Maryland Eastern Shore, where I studied Fashion Merchandising and Business Management. After graduating I worked in retail management, then ultimately relocated to Houston, Texas. I would say fate brought me to education, and the reward of seeing my students grow has kept me here. I have been a math educator/math lead for 4 years. With a focus on ESL, GT/AP courses, integration by providing accommodations for students with special needs, and also experience with the IB Myp. My teaching philosophy is to create an environment that promotes growth in and out of the classroom. In my free time I love to paint, do karaoke, go to live shows and concerts and travel. I am excited to be back in my hometown, and I can not wait to start this new journey here at DCI!
