I am currently Director of Teaching and Learning for Waukegan Public Schools. I have been dedicated to educating youth for more than 20 years. I started out as a psychology instructor for Southern University of Baton Rouge, Louisiana. I eventually moved to Racine Unified School District of Racine, Wisconsin. There I served as teacher and administrator for 20 years. I earned my PhD from Cardinal Stritch University of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. When possible, I find time to pick up my instrument. It allows me to escape the pressures of life.
