I am more than happy to be part of the wonderful Académie Lafayette community. I graduated from the school of education in Dakar, Senegal, known as École Normale Supérieure (ENS). I hold a master’s and a DEA (advanced study degree) in history from Cheikh Anta Diop University, as well as a master’s in international relations from City University of New York. I started a Ph.D. and then left to fill in as a substitute teacher for six months. With that experience, I learned I loved to teach and decided to become a certified teacher. After I taught few years, I left the country. I taught in New York as a GED teacher and served as an enrollment and family advocate.

I was born in Independence, Kansas, (about 20 minutes north of Oklahoma and an hour west of Missouri), and studied at the University of Kansas for both my undergrad and master’s degrees. While there, I studied foreign language education with a focus on French and English as a second language (ESL). I’ve also studied at Université Laval in Québec City, Québec, and Huazhong Normal University in Wuhan, China.

The 2017–2018 school year will be my fifth with Académie Lafayette. AL immediately attracted me because of a few different things: excellent test scores, diversity, French language, and a certain je ne sais quoi.

A couple — subjectively — interesting things about me: I’m getting married in June to l’amour de ma vie, Christine. We have a — again, highly subjective — perfect dog named Hurley. I like to play music (guitar and drums) and whatever sports my knee can handle, work in the garden/woodshop/backyard/garage, and taste exciting foods and drinks as often as possible.
