WELCOME TO MY JOURNEY
I am currently the Science Department Chair at William. H.Turner Technical Arts High School. I also teach AP Biology, Biology Honors and Biology 1.
Our school serves a largely Haitian population who are on free/reduced lunch. Our students come from low-income households with limited resources.
Surviving 18 months of an Emergency shift to online teaching and learning was a difficult task for many. Lack of preparation, training, resources and vision from the ones in charge has led me to seek a Doctoral degree in Instructional Technology and Distance Education from NOVA Southeastern University.
ABOUT THIS SITE:
You can follow my educational journey on this site. Thank you for taking the time to visit.
In researching ways to improve my distance teaching practices and student learning experience, I came across many online programs that offered some components of what I was looking to learn. When I found the NSU Doctoral Program I knew I had to apply and take advantage of what was offered. I had always dreamed of completing my Doctoral Program and when I read the description, I knew this was the right place for me. The interesting thing is that even though my Master's Degree is from the University of Miami, I always loved NOVA, as I was a former "TITAN" from Nova Middle School.
I was enrolled in the bilingual program (1980s) and many of the strategies I use in my classroom were the ones used on me by my teachers during my education at Nova Middle School. The hands-on approach and authenticity of my lessons stems from the teachers who taught out of the textbooks and sometimes outside of the classroom. Applying for this program was an easy choice!
