    Why I Came to Taylor

    I was assistant principal at Dennis Middle School in Richmond for three years. Those were lonely and stressful three years.  The position at Taylor was made available at the time when I was uncertain which turn to take. 


    Gardening and jogging are my most therapeutic hobbies which I enjoy every day including the winter season.

    Major Career Accomplishments

    As the saying goes, “When one need is fulfilled, it leads to the next one.”  In my case, I count all my little victories that will lead to a big one someday.  At this point earning my PhD followed by going to Ethiopia on sabbatical for one semester is HUGE!
