Well, this is me ... I am an African-American female, a second year graduate student at GSU - currently pursuing my Master's in Education Administration, I received my Associate's in Arts degree from Joliet Junior College and my BA in English from GSU. I am an educator, like many other women and men in my family, and most of all, I am a mother. I love being a mom. My daughter, Brooklynn, is 4 years old and she is absolutely my world. I admire her wonder and her amazement at some of the simplest things in the world, things that we adults take for granted. On my teaching philosophy, I wrote that I love to hear students ask the question WHY. My daughter is at that stage, where everything is a question of why? My daughter is my inspiration and I thank God everyday that I have her.
Since as long as I can remember, I have always seen myself as the type of person that helps people in anyway I can, which is why I chose the field of education.
Failure was not an option when I was growing up and therefore in the classroom, I carry those same family values and give my students every opportunity to succeed and become what they want. I have taken over 40 education related courses at GSU and from all of them, I have learned that teaching is an art and that a child's mind is the canvas and I am the one holding the paint and the brush!
