Hello! This is my first year teaching at East Clayton Elementary and I love the parental involvement! It has been amazing seeing first hand the community support at this school, and how everyone is so welcoming. I grew up in (Motown) Detroit, Michigan, one of my heart strings is with Detroit, the music, food, culture, but my heart is not with the cold. I received my Bachelor's Degree from Upper Iowa University through a full scholarship program. I later moved to Memphis, Tennessee where I completed my Master of Science Degree in Education from the University of Memphis. I taught school with Memphis City Schools for sixteen years. I later relocated to North Carolina in 2017, as I have relatives in Cary, Greensboro, Tabor City, Parkton, Fayetteville, and Whiteville, N.C. and wanted to be more near family. Some of the places I have traveled are: France, Italy, Spain, Ireland, Dominican Republic, Barbados, Netherlands, and Mexico. I enjoy learning about other cultures. I have a son, Eugene who is a honor graduate from Middle Tennessee State University, and is now an Industrial Systems Engineer. I love teaching and I believe effective learning requires a collaboration between teacher, students, and parents grounded in mutual respect and trust. My hobbies are: Walking, painting, diy projects, cooking( I can cook Chinese and French food) reading, horseback riding and just having a relaxing time.
I hope everyone has a safe and fun summer!
