What is your occupation?
My occupation is the Supervisor of Minority Business Affairs Office.
What grade level and Junior Achievement program are you teaching?
I am teaching Personal Finance to Seniors at Ribualt High School.
What was your initial reaction when Superintendent Vitti announced that DCPS employees would be going into classrooms to teach JA?
I was excited about the opportunity.
What did you expect coming into this experience?
I was expecting to have fun teaching the class and helping them to understand the importance of how personal finance will impact the rest of the lives.
What would you say to anyone who is considering volunteering for JA?
I would encourage anyone who has experienced life’s lessons to volunteer for JA. They can share some of those experiences with students to help them make better and wiser decisions about their life and their future.

I look forward to working with Junior Achievement in the future because I see that my volunteering makes a difference!
