I believe it takes a village to raise a child. It took a village to raise me. That includes family at home, staff in school, and all the people students interact with throughout their journey in life. I invest in Student U because I know that every students’ village will look different, but I am honored to get the chance to positively contribute to it along the way.
My family is extremely important to me. My husband and immediate family all contribute to the love I experience on a daily basis. But so does my extended family, friends, colleagues, church family, and my STUDENTS! My joy is truly rooted in my ability to help others find and maintain their joy, and I wouldn’t live life any other way. In addition to family, I love music, traveling, and playing softball. I’ve grown a passion for coaching and supporting others with leadership development. I look forward to diving into more of that work in the future.
“No man is an island”. To effectively achieve our ultimate goal, we need to work together to equal 100%. This does not just pertain to our dream of a Durham where all students succeed…this is in life in general. Life goals, friend goals, family goals. It should REALLY BE apart of this nation’s goals… In my opinion, unity is an important key to the growth and success of this generation and those to come.
