English Language Arts and Mathematics Learning Support

I started my career in education as an upper elementary school teacher in Houston, Texas, in the United States in 1999. Upon obtaining my Master of Education degree from Prairie View A&M University in Educational Administration, I began working with the University of Texas supporting schools in the area of Reading in the Houston area.  After 2 years as a vice-principal and 4 as a principal in Houston schools, I moved to Abu Dhabi in 2014 to serve Al Badiya Girls School in Al Ain as a Deputy Principal for the ADEK school reform project. I was with Al Badiya school for 4 years and enjoyed the opportunity to live and serve the students in the UAE.  Living here has allowed me to travel, which is a passion of mine, and I’ve visited a total of 15 countries since my arrival. I look forward to adding to that number!

Joining the team at Ajyal Al Falah American School as Vice Principal/Head of Primary and Middle School has been great! I am excited about serving the students of this school community and providing high levels of teaching and learning through engaging experiences.
