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!
