Welcome to First Grade!
I am very excited to be at Vandenberg World Cultures Academy. I have taught in Southfield for fifteen years. I am a graduate of Spelman College in Atlanta, Georgia, and I also attended Michigan State University for my Masters degree.
I live with my husband, Vince, my son, Austin, and my daughter Camille. Austin is a senior in high school and Camille is a freshman. I also have a sweet dog name Colby. I enjoy spending time with my family, walking our dog, and traveling to Atlanta to spend time with my extended family.
