About Me

The youngest of three, I was born and raised in Memphis, Tennessee. I began playing basketball in 3rd grade. I enjoyed it so much that I continued playing throughout high school, and still play for fun today.
I left the "nest" to complete my studies at Tennessee State University in Nashville, Tennessee. Upon graduation, I decided to return home to Memphis to complete my Masters in Special Education at The University of Memphis. What a rewarding decision I made!
Throughout my teaching experience, I have enjoyed learning about the unique needs of the students I serve, and the different ways I can service each student.  I simply love what I do, and I look forward to entering a new school year with your child.
Much like the sport of basketball, with the help of my wonderful team and your encouraged support, I am confident this will be a great year!
