It is so exciting to be apart of Dekalb Academy of Technology & Environment. This school has a history of academic excellence and strong relationships with students, parents, faculty, and the community. DATE creates a school environment like no other and works hard to ensure that all students receive our motto daily: Learning with Relationships, Relevance, and Rigor.

I have had the amazing opportunity to be in education for 16 years, teaching all elementary grade levels as a classroom teacher or subject area specialist. After seven years with Dekalb County Schools, I came to DATE as an Instructional Coach and was granted the opportunity to lead the elementary department four years ago.

It has been awesome to lead one of the oldest charters schools in Dekalb County. The students at DATE have a plethora of opportunities that will allow them be successful in all that they do. I am fully committed to ensuring that each student becomes an EAGLE and SOARS to EXCELLENCE.
