About

I joined Prince George’s Community College Department of Teacher Education as an Associate Professor of Reading Instruction in August 2001. Before joining Prince George’s Community College, I was an elementary and middle school classroom teacher, reading specialist, and special educator for Prince George’s County Public Schools, Calvert County Public Schools, Montgomery County Public Schools, and the District of Columbia Public Schools.

I received my Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education from Bowie State University, a Master’s degree in Reading Instruction from Bowie State University, and a Master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction with a specialization in Bilingual Special Education from The George Washington University.  A third Master’s degree from Capella University in Instructional Design for Online Learning was achieved in 2010. I will soon be pursuing a Doctorate.

I’m a subject matter expert in literacy instruction and teacher education. Hence, when I’m not designing instruction, I’m functioning as The Literacy Butler. When I get an opportunity, I create podcasts and blogs on how I consciously and deliberately build a student’s vocabulary knowledge and word consciousness. Follow my hashtag, #teachthebabiesvocabulary.

I’m also an Instructional Designer for Online Learning for Ubuntu Learning Solutions, LLC managing their Ulimi Online LMS and The Word Conscious Classroom LMS. I’ve been in the field of Instructional Design since 2005 and I admire all of the processes and intricacies of learning, thus designing instruction is my calling.

I’m devoted to ensuring that learners are in charge of their learning and that learners co-design their instruction. In addition to designing instruction, I also function as a teacher educator and an ubuntugogist. Using the seminal work of Dr. Abdul Karim Bangura, I infuse afro-centric ideologies within the instructional design process.
