I am a highly motivated school leader completely committed to using the power of public school education power to positively transform the lives of young learners.

Doing my educational career, I have served As a school administrator, team leader and graduation coach. In these capacities, I have trained staff in using team strategies for increased student connectedness & academic performance along with reducing student behavioral issues. I have presented professional development workshops on implementing project based learning across multiple subject areas. Additionally, I have conducted college week activities and FAFSA campaigns to increase student college readiness.

Currently, I am an assistant principal at a medium-sized comprehensive public high school, I work with staff, students, parents and community members to create a culture of equality & success based on good curriculum and data-driven best practices.

My responsibilities include recruiting/ screening and interviewing new employees, maintaining Avondale High Schools' website, implementing district mission statement, addressing student issues and/ or parent concerns, teacher/ staff evaluations, providing staff with professional development, managing hall monitor schedules, facilitating continuous school improvement/ AdvancED compliance, planning and conducting safety drills. I work with The Auburn Hills Police and Fire Department to insure campus safety.

My areas of interest are student culture improvement, reducing academic achievement disparities using cultural awareness and parent engagement, facilitating cross-curricular common-core based faculty collaboration using smaller learning community concepts; insuring each student has an appropriate educational development plan and activating community resources to increase student success.

I am always open to opportunities for increased responsibility, professional growth and developing new strategies for creating equity of academic outcomes for disadvantaged students.
