EDUCATIONAL BACKGROUND

M.S. Microbiology, University of Maryland at Baltimore  1988

BSc. Medical Laboratory Technology Howard University 1982
   
EDUCATIONAL PHILOSOPHY


I have come to  realize that achieving one's educational goals should be the main focus in a student's life and therefore distracters such as job anxiety and child-care worries should be minimized.  I feel that our society should work toward an educational system that offers free tuition and quality child-care at the college level in exchange for  a volunteer's expertise  post graduation.
 
PAST  PROJECTS

A grant award from Learning Innovations Team to research learning strategies for  promoting successful outcomes  of Medical Laboratory Technology students.

INTERESTS


I enjoy traveling to exotic places and combining fun  activities with learning. For that reason I prefer to have a tour guide  when I am in a  foreign country. My other interests  include going to the theatre, gardening, cooking and volunteering.
