I am excited to serve as Assistant Principal of Bassett High School.  My goal is to utilize exemplary leadership and impeccable communication with all teachers, staff, parents, students, and stakeholders of the community to inspire learners to positively impact their world.  It is important to me that I serve in a capacity that allows Bassett High School and students to achieve at high levels and exceed expectations.

I have 14 years of experience in education and have served in the capacity of school administration for six years in public and private sectors of education.  I graduated from Liberty University with and Education Specialist degree in Educational Leadership and a Doctorate in Education in the area of Educational Leadership.  I strongly believe that learning never stops and I will encourage ALL students to strive for their greatest potential. My educational philosophy hinges on the premise of providing teachers, staff and students with what they need in order to deliver high quality instruction that produces impactful learning in and outside of the classroom. As a member of the leadership team, I will work tirelessly to make sure we put students first in all facets of education.
