Hello. This is my story.

I was born and raised in Maryland, just a short distance from our nation’s capital, Washington, D.C. My great-grandmother played a significant role in shaping my childhood and instilling in me an appreciation for American History. Through her vivid stories, I learned about the country’s rich and complex past, from the triumphs of the Apollo missions to the struggles of the Great Depression and the Civil Rights Movement. Her stories ignited a passion for history in me, compelling me to study and explore the mysteries and lessons of the past. As a child, I was fascinated by the idea of teaching and knew that it was my calling. I pursued my passion by attending the University of Central Florida, where I earned a degree in [American] History.

After graduation, I began my career as an educator in Port St. Lucie, Florida. During my time in St. Lucie, I taught a variety of subjects and worked with students of different backgrounds in Middle and High School. After moving around during the Pandemic, the need for family pulled me back closer to home. I currently reside in Hollywood, Florida, where I continue to teach and share my passion for history. I am available to teach, mentor, and guide students in Middle or High School and am willing to travel as far north as Port St. Lucie. I am available seven days a week after 2:40 p.m., and I am committed to providing a safe, supportive, and engaging learning environment for all of my students.
