It is my belief that education should enhance an individual’s innate talents. As opposed to providing answers, education should bring out the individual’s natural ability to question, deduct, reason and learn.
I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from Tennessee State University. There I graduated summa cum laude and focused on prevention and early intervention programs for children that improve educational outcomes. I went on to get my Master’s Degree from Vanderbilt University in Child Studies. There I continued to focus on prevention and early intervention programs for disadvantaged and minority children.
I have several years of teaching experience. I own my own child care center and teach preschool age children. I also teach undergraduate college courses in psychology at Tennessee State University.
My extracurricular activities mostly consist of painting, sculpting, jewelry-making, writing and cooking. I participate in volunteer experiences with local child-focused non-profits. I love chess! And, of course, I also enjoy spending time with friends and family.
