As a native of the city of Atlanta, I'm proud to say that I am a product of the public schools here.  Atlanta is quite different from the city that I grew up in, and the changes have been tremendous for our beloved home town.  I have been in the field of education for over 20 years now.  I am currently an Educator for the Douglas County School System.  I am delighted to presently have the opportunity to fulfill my calling.
