Degrees and Certifications:
"Originally from Chicago, Illinois, I was blessed to receive both a full athletic scholarship for football and academic scholarship to Missouri Western State University in St. Joseph Missouri. After earning my Bachelor's degree in History with teacher certification (7-12), I earned an internship with the Missouri Department of Higher Education in Jefferson City. Upon completion of the internship, I started my teaching career in St. Louis in 1997. After teaching in and assuming many leadership positions in various diverse secondary educational institutions (both private and public schools, grades 7-12), I am entering my 24th year in education overall- my second in Hazelwood and my first at Southeast Middle School. I am very excited to begin this journey with this amazing community!"
