About Me:
I am in my fourth year of teaching. I am a career changer that felt the call to teach and haven't looked back since. Last year I was honored by my school's top student as Star Teacher, and by my peers as Teacher of the Year. I have also been named to Who's Who of Outstanding American Teachers ever year I've taught. My prior career involved over twelve years of information technology / computer science experience. I feel that my former career has helped me relate to students why and how what they are learning is relevant to the workforce.
College and Degrees:
A.S. with an emphasis in Computer Science B.S. in Human Resource Leadership M.Ed.with an emphasis in Secondary Education
Activities:
In addition to teaching full time, I am also a contractor with the Mississippi Virtual Public School. I have taught part time with them until this term, where I was asked to take on the role of Coach. I now mentor other teachers who are teaching online. I've also worked as a course developer with MVPS to redesign and augment pre-packaged courses to include videos, podcasts, and an expanded, multi-media enriched curriculum. Thus far, I've been involved in the redesign of Visual Basic Programming I and II and C++ Programming I and II.
Favorite Books:

Favorite Quotes:
Efforts Equal Results It is not about me! Treat people the way you want to be treated. Treat people the way they want to be treated. Love one another. Give a man a fish and he eats for a day. Teach a man to fish and he eats for a lifetime. So oftentimes it happens that we live our lives in chains, never realizing we hold the key.

Why Do I Teach?:
Quite simply, because I breathe. At the very essence of who I am, I am a teacher. I have found my life purpose, and it is amazing to know that I am where I was made to be. I pride myself in teaching students through my subject. The emphasis is on the student and the relationship. I use my knowledge and skills to guide and impact high school students positively. I also share my life lessons. I love those kids.
