“Teaching and Learning is Infinite”
I am mother, educator, model, and most of all I am Woman. My journey in this thing called life is exactly what it is, a journey.
I was born and raised in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
I moved to Atlanta, Georgia in 1989 where I attended Clark Atlanta University for a year. After completing a year at Clark, I’ve decided to do some soul searching and not return to college. On September 2, 1992, I gave birth to my first born, Kasia Renee. Being a single parent wasn’t part of my plan. However, being a single mother has taught me how to sacrifice, be more selfless, and strong. It wasn’t until 1994, when I met my ex-husband, and moved to Huntsville, Alabama. While living in Huntsville, AL, I was able to enroll at the University of Alabama-Huntsville, where I was initiated into the illustrious sorority of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated, one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. In 1996, we moved to Irving, Texas where I enrolled in Dallas Baptist University where I gave birth to Jordan Ford, (1996) and Kristopher (1999). After living and working in Irving, Texas for so many years, we decided to relocate to Atlanta, GA in 2001.
I have been in the field of education since 2004 in Douglas County. I am a special education and general education teacher. I have taught middle grades in all subject areas. I was named the 2016-2017 Teacher of the Year from my school. I have had the privileged and honor of working with some of the best teachers in the County.
I am an active member of Sigma Omega Omega of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. Within this chapter, I work with Douglas County communities through various community service works. This includes, voter’s registration, refurbish playgrounds, back to school book bag drive, just to name a few. Serving the people of Douglas County gives me pure joy.
In the area of love, I am a woman who loves hard. Often times, love is not reciprocated from other’s. Since my divorced, I only loved two men. Although those relationships did not work out, I still haven’t given up hope. I see people around me getting married. Although I am extremely happy for them, I am wondering if I would get another chance to find love again or should I say love finds me. I keep myself actively busy with work, modeling with Ageless Beauties (The Lyngale Agency), working out in the gym, and spending time with family and friends.
Overall, my journey sounds like everyone else’s story; however, my story is customized just for me. I have taken every accomplishment and set back as a stepping stone in my life. I live life with no regrets. I’m a blessed woman!!
