My educational philosophy is to create a positive, engaging student-centric environment and to expect excellence every day. Every student CAN learn and every student WANTS to learn. Students learn best with diagnostic-prescriptive instruction, spiral curriculum, and problem-based learning. Education is a life-long journey of discovery, collaboration, and perseverance.
In 2002, I received my Bachelor of Science in Biology from Prairie View A&M University. Next, I completed the Postbaccalaureate Program and two years of medical school at Creighton University. I am currently completing the second year of my Masters of Special Education in Learning Disabilities program at American University. My expected graduation date is May, 2015.
My teaching experiences include an ACT Summer Upward Bound Lecturer at University of Maryland, a Kaplan Test Prep ACT/SAT Teacher for nine years, and a two year Math Fellow at a STEM Academy and at a High School. I am currently a Developmental Math Adjunct and Tutor at Prince George’s Community College and an intern at The Laboratory School of Washington.
At Life Pieces to Masterpieces, a non-profit for young African-American boys and young men, I mentor young boys in the after school program. I also teach and tutor English to adult immigrants at the Washington English Center.
