All About Me....
I am from the Kansas City area. I attended Grandview High School in Grandview, Mo. I attended Lincoln University for my college years and played basketball all 4 years. I earned my Bachelor's Degree in Physical Education, certification in Health, and a Masters Degree in Secondary Administration. I am a PROUD member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. since 1995.

I began my teaching career in Jefferson City, where I taught for 7 years and coached volleyball, basketball and track for 5 years. I returned to Kansas City in 2007 and have been teaching in the KCMO area ever since. This is my 19th year in education overall and my 7th year at University Academy. I am the Middle School Girls Health & Physical Education teacher, National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) Sponsor and newly elected Spirit Queen of UAMS!

I have an 8 year old son who attends University Academy. We enjoy attending church, watching and attending Royals & Chiefs games, traveling, bowling & the water (pools, ocean, water hose).

It is truly a BLESSING to be here at UA and a GREAT day to be a GRYPHON!
