Greetings Briar Vista families!

Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year! I am excited to be here with you during my 23rd year of experience working with elementary and middle school students. I graduated from Florida A&M University with a B.S. in Elementary Education, obtained my M.S. in Elementary Education with a focus on Reading and Literacy from Walden University and my Ed.S. in Educational Leadership from Lincoln Memorial University. In addition to my tenure as a classroom teacher, I have also served as an Instructional Support Specialist for DeKalb County Schools.

I am eager and excited about what promises to be a great school year with academic experiences that are rigorous, relevant, and help our students make real-world connections. As your Assistant Principal, I am dedicated to serving with passion and my goal is to foster an environment where all students feel like integral members of our learning community.

My door is always open and I welcome your input. Please feel free to call or email me to discuss any concerns you might have throughout the school year. I look forward to working with you as a team to help each student at Briar Vista reach their goals and have a successful school year!
