WELCOME TO MY WORLD
I am a silly person and I like to have fun in the classroom but I take the work VERY seriously. Don't let the smile fool you : -)
B.A. African American Studies
I've been a social studies at West Mecklenburg High School since the Fall of 1999. I love West Meck; not only is West a Great school but West also has Great Students!
One of my favorite sayings is: "Your situation or circumstance does not define you or manifest your destiny; You do."
I believe that we are responsible for our actions and that we are in control of our outcomes. Life is not about what happens to us, but how we respond to events that take place in our lives.
I LOVE teaching with a passion but my Dream is to become a professional Stand-Up Comedian, which I am currently pursuing.
It is never too early or late to DreamBIG!
I am not here to be your friend, I have many friends. My job is to teach you, guide you, mold you, shape you, motivate you, help you, encourage you, and to be there for you as your Teacher.
Always believe in yourself no matter what anyone says.
ALL DREAMS ARE POSSIBLE!
Let's have a Great Year.
I am excited about the adventures in learning that we will be sharing this year.
Use this website to your advantage. I will be using it as an additional resource for both my AVID and World History courses that I will be teaching for the 2013-2014 school year.
The 21st Century awaits us. Lets not keep her waiting. We must learn to use technology as an effective tool in the learning process.
I will work you hard. My goal is to not only prepare you for success in high school but for success in life as well.
