WHO AM I?

I am passionate about
social justice for families;
it is the driving factor in
the work I do with parents
and children every day,
my murals, etc.

MY ART BACKGROUND
My murals are my nonverbal expression about my views
about diversity and social justice issues. They talk about
diversity of abilities, disabilities, families, gender, age, race,
socioeconomic status, etc.

My education experience has


given me advanced perception of
local nonprofit agencies, their
leaders, and what they offer

My experience has taught me how to guide parents


to use a majority of positive behavior techniques,
finding access to funding sources for childcare, and
developmentally appropriate programs
At John Hope we work daily
with at-risk families to
achieve greater academic
success by creating
realistic learning goals
based on the families
needs and children's
interests.
Im motivated to provide
ongoing sustainable
programs where youth can John Hope Kindergarten at

PROGRAMMING
We council parents and
families every day at John
Hope. It takes a sense of
humor, training a tight knit
and knowledgeable team,
and meeting day to day with
families to form very tight
and trusting relationships.
Offering parent workshops is
very important for
strengthening those
connections

Ultimately, the work I do is about


celebrating parents,
children, and staff. I hope that we
can work together to not only
provide access to progress but to
celebrate growth, learning, and
partnerships.
