“I touch the future. I teach.”
One of the proudest days of my life was my first official day as a teacher. Since I was born, I felt as though the profession flowed naturally through my veins. My great-great grandmother (whose last teacher’s contract is proudly displayed in office, along with my mother’s and my own) set the standard in my family. Her influence was renowned, not only through Hinds County but also in our family. All of her children, grand children, great and great-great grandchildren take pride in the fact that they followed in her footsteps.
