Transitioning Educator – Education

I’m a perpetual student and highly determined individual with a passion for cultivating community and using creativity and innovation as a catalyst for development by effectively collaborating with people who are determined to fulfill a common mission. I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in African and African American studies and Design and Visual communications from UVA. Since graduation I’ve completed coursework in product design, digital marketing and entrepreneurship.

As an Algebra 1 instructor for ages 13-16, I’ve helped students produce an 11% increase on standardized testing. I have improved their retention rate of algebraic concepts by teaching them how to problem solve and dissect difficult information whilst managing behavioral patterns of each student by implementing mindfulness habits that encourage them to persevere through difficult problems, and develop emotional intelligence.
