Welcome, E Prep Scholars!

Hello 8th Grade!

Hello 8th Grade!

I am excited to assist on your journey to high school! Together, we will explore all the options that best fit your next phase in education. You will be introduced to schools that focus on the arts, flying aircrafts, schools that prepare you for work, and schools that prepare you for college. This year will move fast and we will get to the finish line together! By Christmas Break most of you will have chosen at least 2-3 schools to apply to.

I have been at E Prep for 14 years now and love the work we do with the youth of Cleveland! It’s all about you! I am dedicated to our E Prep families because like you, I am from Cleveland. I attended John Hay High School, and grew up in the Saint Clair/Superior neighborhoods. After high school I attended Kent State and Cleveland State. Ironically, I was a History major but have never taught history at Breakthrough! I have served as Dean of Students for several years and recently became Director of High School Placement a few years back.

In my spare time I’m always surrounded by family and friends. I’m an aspiring writer, PS4 player, frequent traveler, gym goer wannabe, and a pretty good cook. My background in History sparks me to always ask how our present connects with our past. I research a lot! I am currently involved in BLM movements and issues that face our nation/generation today.

It’s my goal to help you reach the next level in your educational journey so you may become leaders of generations to come!
