I am a currently the Director for Abundance Eductational Consulting, LLC. In this position I have worked as the Consulting Outreach Program Coordinator for the NASA CBER Stars Program on the campus of Texas Southern University for elementary, middle and high school students. This program works in collaboration with NASA to provide learners hands-on instruction and field experiences in the STEM areas. While in this position, I have also worked as the Dean of Instruction at the Historical Phillis Wheatley High School under the leadership of David Edgerson. Prior to this role I served as a curriculum specialist in the A2TeaMS (Academy of Accomplished Teachers in Math and Science) for the Houston Independent School District, and provided instructional coaching for a cohort of math and science teachers within the Houston Independent School District. Throughout this time I observed Science teachers struggling with incorporating Literacy within the classroom. This experience prompted me to pair with the Literacy Specialist within our district and provide both district and state trainings for Science teachers on Literacy best practices in the content area. In addition to instructional coaching, I provide curricular support within the district to develop 5E lessons and administration of quality professional development. I have also expanded my efforts to fulfill the role of Science Pedagogy instructor with the College of Education at Texas Southern University. In this position I provide instruction on how to embed best practices and pedagogy in science content.
All in all, as an educator, my goal is to leave every environment better than it was prior to my arrival. I strive to empower those that are in my classroom to do great things outside the scope of what they consider is their limit. Limits are parameters that individuals place on themselves to remain protected from the unknown. The unknown, however; is inevitable and will take place even if limits are maintained. Space exploration, the invention of the iphone, and nanotechnology would have never evolved if individuals operated within their limits. I would appreciate the opportunity of a personal interview to review other facets of my career that would serve beneficial to your present endeavors.
