I am a former Baltimore city public school teacher with a Masters in Counseling. I have one daughter and a husband who is disabled. I have cared for my mother who died after a brave battle with Lung Cancer. I enjoy being around others and helping them.
After completing college with an ever changing career path from nursing, premed, along with chemistry finally stopping in the education wing, I graduated with a degree in education. Graduating in December gave me the opportunity to work in the Archdiocese of Baltimore as a long term substitute teacher. For the following school year I was offered a position with the Baltimore City Public School System.
Teaching for Baltimore City offered many incentives and challenges. I was offered a very nice salary and great benefits. While starting my career in this school system I faced many challenges. My first year I was placed at one school with a specialized curriculum and then involuntarily transferred after the first marking period due to enrollment changes. Working in an inner city school provided many opportunities to experience new ideas, cultures, people and places. I developed a better understanding for varying life choices and circumstances. This allowed me to see the resilience in human beings. I met children, their families and other professionals from a multitude of backgrounds, found common ground and developed goals to grow in our humanity intellectually, emotionally, socially, spiritually and physically.
While teaching I completed my masters degree in Counseling, I married and started a family. As a dedicated teacher I created proposals and acquired grants for educational materials and programs for the students and communities of schools. Above the credits from my masters degree while working I also maintained additional coursework to continue the requirements for my teaching certification.
Teaching is a very rewarding career but along with that there are many aspects of teaching that are draining. Upon completion of my twenty second year of this career I found my heart was no longer able to give at one hundred percent. With the demands of my family, the additional demands made on teaching and other life occurrences I found it time to move from the classroom to a supporting role in education. I have been searching for positions that will provide a fulfillment of this need and that will also challenge me I have been searching to begin to fulfill this goal.
In the next few years I see myself in a role where I can serve as a tool for others in becoming more aware of their own goals and finding the path in fulfillment of their goals.
