Research shows that students who don’t participate in summer learning activities lose ground over the summer compared to peers who do. DCPS offers academic summer programs in order for students to be prepared for the following school year. Learn more about DCPS Summer Programs for Kindergarten through high school students.

Social Media has many useful benefits.  I’m honored to be the guest speaker at The Rare Academy and #BeRare during  its “#I❤️MySelfieAndMySister” workshop.   I will be empowering middle and high school young ladies to love themselves and the young ladies around them, especially on social media.  It starts with proper use and self respect. We are empowering each other and holding each other up and it starts now!!
