Ph.D. in Curriculum and Instruction
Action research has always been my practice. My research has allowed me to observe what happens in the classroom and how stakeholders respond to innovation. These stakeholders are administrators, students, teachers, and parents.
At FAU, I also worked with faculty in the Palm Beach School district. This experience has been enriching for both researchers and all the engaged stakeholders, especially the students.
CLUBS AND ORGANIZATIONS:
I am presently the President of the Student Achievement Council and a Kappa Delta Pi member in the College of Education. At FAU, I am a member of the Holmes program and Phi Kappa Phi. Nationally I am a board member of the AACTE Holmes Scholars, and internationally I serve as the External Relations Officer of the Pan in Schools Coordinating Council located in Trinidad and Tobago.
ONE THING EVERY FAU STUDENT SHOULD EXPERIENCE:
Every student should experience a football game in the stadium. The atmosphere is electrifying, patriotism is at its highest level, and the community support is unbelievable. Make sure you know what colors are being worn by the spectators, and you are sure to make a lifelong friend at the event.
ADVICE FOR FELLOW STUDENTS:
Stay focused and know that you are worthy of your scholarship at FAU. There are many opportunities to learn new knowledge and skills. Join at least one of the student government organizations and participate in the numerous professional development sessions. After you graduate, I can assure you that you will be ready to contribute immensely and positively to the broader society.
My plans are first to become a professor and actively contribute to the academy. Secondly, to continue my community work nationally, regionally, and internationally and find the time to return to my engagement in sports and music upon graduation.
