In the Community

Education Consultant

I am a mother, educator, student, trainer, life coach, motivational speaker, spiritual advisor, advocate, and activist. ​

My mission is to help educators help students help their communities by collaborating with individuals, groups, and institutions to develop strategies for implementing community-based learning activities into the curriculum. 

Community-Based Education (CBE)
CBE refers to a variety of instructional practices used to connect what is being taught in schools to students' surrounding communities. 

Benefits of CBE include:​
     ✓  Helping students understand academic content in a "real world" context
     ✓  Increasing students' excitement about learning
     ✓  Strengthening students' higher-order thinking skills
     ✓  Developing students' 21st Century and 3rd Millennium Skills™
     ✓  Improving students' retention of academic knowledge 
     ✓  Expanding students' college and career-readiness 
     ✓  Fostering stronger relationships between schools and their communities
     ✓  Increasing the community’s investment in, understanding of, and support for the school

CBE is a viable solution to closing the opportunity gap that many marginalized students experience because it is a culturally responsive and relevant approach to education that allows students to use 21st-century skills and standards-based skills to better understand and improve their communities.
