I have worked in the field of education for over 23 years in which I’ve served as a classroom teacher and a mathematics coach. I am originally from Brooklyn, New York where I taught for 13 years before moving to Arlington, Virginia. I’ve worked as a classroom teacher at Arlington Traditional School and served as a mathematics coach at Carlin Springs, Campbell and Oakridge Elementary Schools.

I have a Master’s Degree in Africana Studies (State University of New York at Albany), Math Education and Educational Policy (University of Virginia) and Education Leadership (George Mason University).

I am excited to be the Principal of Dr. Charles R. Drew Elementary School and look forward to continuing the great work we’ve begun with our Drew Elementary families, staff, students, and community.
