“Teaching is not an option, it’s an obligation, as it fuels the growth and greatness of environments, endeavors, and human experience.”
It is with great pleasure and enthusiasm that I introduce myself as the new School Leader of KIPP ZENITH Academy for the 2022-2023 school year. I am so excited to continue working alongside our students, extremely dedicated staff, and families. As a product of the Sunnyside community, I am committed to building relationships and making significant contributions to an outstanding educational institution.
I look forward to fostering long-lasting relationships with all stakeholders as we work together to build partnerships for your child's educational journey.
I joined the KIPP family in 2011. Over the past 11 years, I have been dedicated to supporting students, families, and educators at KIPP ZENITH Academy. I have served as a founding 2nd-grade teacher, Dean of Student Culture, Campus Testing Coordinator, Dean of Early Childhood, Instructional Coach, Assistant Principal, and Principal In Residence. I am a lifelong learner committed to student achievement and character development. It has been an honor to commit to closing gaps and opening doors of opportunity for ALL students. I have demonstrated forward-thinking and inspired leadership that results in useful, differentiated educational principles and practices.
I attended Prairie View A&M University, obtaining my Bachelor’s degree in Interdisciplinary Studies and a Master’s in Education Administration. I am committed to connecting academic advancement, student excellence, and educational transformation within my leadership. I believe that every child deserves a quality education. Teaching is not an option, it’s an obligation, as it fuels the growth and greatness of environments, endeavors, and human experience. As well as fosters a spirit of enthusiastic lifelong learners.
I enjoy spending time with my 2 children, family, and friends in my spare time.
I look forward to embarking on this journey with all parents, students, and staff to create an amazing learning environment and a cohort of enthusiastic lifelong learners.
