Urban Educator: one who teaches and slays simultaneously



I'm a teacher in the New York City public school system.  I currently teach 4th grade, but I have taught students in grades ranging from Kindergarten to 5th grade.  

I was born in Yonkers, N.Y. and I grew up in the Schlobohm Houses.  As the daughter of two hardworking parents, I was taught good work ethic and dreamed of becoming a lawyer.  With law at heart, I always excelled in school and headed straight to college after high school.  In college, I fell in absolute love with African American History and decided to pursue scholarship instead law.  The more I learned, the more I wanted to be someone who provided a vital service to the community.  Knowing that one of the best ways to build a strong community is to build strong children led me to education.  I received a second graduate degree in education and have been teaching in the community ever since.
