About Me:  

I am entering my fifteenth year in education, my first year at Roberto Clemente School.  I have had multiple perspectives in education, from a Special Education teacher, Counselor and International Academic Advisor in Abu Dhabi.  I grew up in southern Virginia, where I also attended Virginia State University for both my bachelors and masters degree.  I am currently working towards my Ed.S at Old Dominion University. My favorite book is the Alchemist by Paulo Coelho. Most people who read it will in fact agree that it’s motivational to pursue your hidden dreams. I believe this book inspired me to work and travel abroad to well over 20 countries. I love sharing my pictures from Jordan, Israel, Egypt and more. Feel free to stop by and I can share with you.
