I am committed to closing the opportunity gap for our Youth. I  believe that high-quality, rigorous programming, will ensure that students are successful in their post-secondary endeavors.  Having worked with students from Early Childhood (3 & 4 years), K-5, 6-8, 9-12, undergraduate, master level, and doctoral students has given me a clear understanding of the entire educational system and what is needed to support student success.
