I chose to teach because I love children and enjoy watching them learn and grow.

Professional Career
I was a legal secretary for 9 years before deciding to become a teacher. I taught 1/2 year in Pre K at Seventh Ward, then moved to Herod where I stayed for 6 years before my transfer to Dozier. This is my 6th year at Dozier.
