Hello parents of the Duncanville school district,

Even while living across the great Atlantic Ocean for several years, I found that teaching is something I am made for. After getting my diploma, I started teaching in a small private school in Kansas City, where I grew up. While I lived in Mali, West Africa in a small village, I home schooled my own children. We moved to the capital city, Bamako and I started teaching in a “Missionary School”. I taught there for a year then moved to the American International School of Bamako.  The word diversity is my take away for this opportunity that came my way.  We returned to the US in 2007. I have been teaching all my life but never received my certificate. After working in schools here in the Duncanville community and working on my own education I received my Special Education Certification. I have been teaching with my certification since 2010.  It is so rewarding to see my students grow.  Each one is unique and special and they grow in their own special way. I value this time that I get to watch my students grow.
