I earned my Social Studies teaching certification at Langston University, and went on to achieve a dual Master's in Education in Special Education and Cross-Cultural Language and Acquisition from National University in San Diego, CA. I have taught students from San Diego and Tulsa in grades 6 through adult, in the areas of special education, gifted education, and regular education. I was also a corporate trainer for 5 years. I spent the past 7 years in Tulsa Public Schools at Hale High School teaching Special Education, World History, PreAP World History, AVID and Cheerleading, before joining Memorial as their Staff Development Teacher.
