What do you enjoy most about working/teaching at NSHS? I enjoy working with students and their families, sharing some of the experiences I have had sending my own children to college with minimal expense. I also enjoy assisting students to really prepare to make the transition from Mom or Dad doing things for them to the student doing things for himself or herself.
How do you like to spend your free time? I am a spa diva — I love vacations, fine dining, and live music.
What is your favorite place in the world? Serengeti in Tanzania
What is the last book you read? What Truth Sounds Like by Michael Eric Dyson
Which authors have influenced you the most? Carter G. Woodson influenced my career as an educator.
What do you hope students will come away with after attending NSHS? Besides transferable college credits, I hope that students learn to be self-reliant, independent thinkers with a self-prescribed plan to reach their goals.
