Favorite Quote: “The secret in education lies in respecting the student” ~Ralph Waldo Emerson


“You know, kids don’t learn from people they don’t like” ~Rita Pierson


My “why” for teaching: My “why” in teaching is to change the lives of my students. I want to embolden my students and give them the tools necessary to achieve their goals. I want my students to know with the right attitude and determination they truly can do anything!


Favorite EdRising Moment: My favorite Ed Rising moment would have to be when I facilitated the first meeting as President of my chapter. We played teacher games one being what we call “100% Teacher” where members sit in groups and have 1 minute to grade 2 papers, write the score, and put a sticker on the paper.


Career Goals: I want to start my career as a middle school teacher, teaching either English, Social Studies, or Business then move up as an Assistant Principal or Principal!
