My background

I  have lived in Birmingham for over 10 years, and consider Birmingham my  home.   I am a Professor at Jefferson State Community College in the Communication Department.  I have also taught at Miles College and the University of Alabama at Birmingham.

My top issues

I am running to make a difference in the education of our children. As an educator, my mission is to contribute to the students’ intellectual growth.  I will work with my fellow board members and the superintendent to establish a vision for our schools.  I will work with the superintendent, and administrators so our teachers can teach and our students can learn.  I am a true believer that all children can learn.

My involvement

I am a member of the National Education Association and a member of the Alabama Education Association.  I have completed the Emerging Leaders program with the National Education Association and traveled to Long Beach California and St. Louis to help resolve salary disputes and worked on the Degrees No Debt initiative on two community college campuses. I have also completed the Alabama Education Association Emerging Leaders program.
