Please tell us about yourself
I grew up in Guyana South America and relocated to the United States when I was 13 years old. My interests include poetry, drama and discipleship. I love spending time walking and reflecting on the goodness of God.
When not in the classroom or mentoring beloved students, I love to spend time eating “great” food with my husband Steve, and reading and reflecting on the goodness of God in my life. I live in Rockland County with my husband, and together we have one son. We are part of the ministry at the International Gathering at Beth Rapha in Pomona, New York.
How has God brought you to work at EC?
My former school will close in August of this year, and I was contacted by EC via email. After doing some research on EC, speaking to alumni, applying and meeting with the principal, I felt that EC was the place for me. I made my decision a matter of prayer and received counsel before accepting the position.
Prior to EC, I spent many years teaching in college and building programs to ensure student success. I received two masters degrees en route to becoming a college instructor and program director. I am grateful to have served students in this way.
What sets EC apart?
EC seems to be a place where God is at work in the formation of our youth as they prepare to go into the world to become all that He is calling them to be. I believe that we need to train our youth to know who they are in Christ, what they believe and why, and how to share their faith. EC is a place where students are challenged to grow both academically and spiritually. It is a place of preparation.
