I currently serve as an Assistant Principal at Rockwood Summit H.S., and I've been in this post for two years. I am also working on my Doctor of Education in Educational Leadership at Maryville University. Prior to being at Summit, I was a Social Studies teacher at Parkway Central High School. I also had stints at Wright City High School, as well as University High School. While at Parkway Central, I created a Contemporary Issues curriculum. The goal of the class was to facilitate constructive discussions on the topics of race, politics, and identity. At each of my stops, I've been successful in connecting different groups of people, while providing a forum for different ideologies to blend together. Since becoming an administrator, I've been able to take a lot of the elements I used in the classroom, and I have begun implementing policies of inclusion, understanding, and culture from a school-wide standpoint. My education includes a B.S. in History with an emphasis on African-American History and a Minor in Sociology from Truman State University; Master of Art in Education from Webster University; and a Master of Educational Administration from Missouri Baptist University.
