Before I became a teacher, I held positions in office management, accounting, sales and marketing and employment services. After I had my two boys, I decided to go back to school so that I could pursue the career I’ve felt called to nearly all my life, teaching.

As a single mama, I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree in History with a minor in English. Three years later, while teaching full-time, I earned my Master of Arts in Teaching with a dual certification in Middle Education (grades 4-8) and Special Education (grades K-12).

For over six years, I worked in some of the most impoverished and gang-ridden communities in our state as an educator and mentor. My experience in these neighborhoods has shaped my life in countless ways and burdened by heart for those who are marginalized in our society.

When I’m not spending time with my family or preparing lesson plans, I like to blog here about things like education, parenting, justice, and current events.
