I have worked in the educational field since January 2002. It has been a privilege over the years to be a part of the lives of the young people serve. I want to continue to contribute and assist students through teaching them how to learn and grow. I have over 20 years of experience in the business field. I used my business experience to begin a career in the educational field. I was a Business Manager for three years for a school and then promoted to Assistant Principal for four years. I received my Bachelors and Masters Degrees in Business from the University of Phoenix. I am currently working on my doctoral degree in Educational Leadership.

Academics & Activities
Hope of Detroit Academy uses the Common Core State Standards, developed by the Common Core State Standards Initiative, for English Language Arts and Mathematics. The Michigan Curriculum Framework aligned with the Michigan K-8 Grade Level Content Expectations are used for Social Studies, Music and Visual Arts. The state of Michigan has adopted a new set of standards called the Michigan Science Standards (MSS) in November 2015. The MSS is a movement that is in line with the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and is heavily focused on performance tasks.
To ensure that our students are able to express themselves in a clear, succinct manner, focusing more on depth than breadth, Hope of Detroit Academy has adopted Step Up to Writing for teaching writing. Step Up to Writing is a grade-cluster, yearlong Common Core workshop curriculum with an emphasis on narrative, informational and persuasive writing for grades K–4. Step Up to Writing will guide students in attaining and exceeding the Common Core writing expectations. Teachers utilize this resource to explicitly teach different genres of writing. It also requires high-level thinking including more opportunities to synthesize, analyze, and critique. Students will write across the curriculum and receive regular feedback and monitoring from their classroom teachers.
