Biography

As a highly qualified and certified Social Studies Teacher at the Senior High School level with expertise in History, Government, Economics, Philosophy, and Psychology, I have a penchant for public policy and liberal arts and sciences. Educationally, I have been named Whose Who in American Education and am a Kappa Delta Pi member, international education honor society. My background before teaching was in business/economic development, where I held President and Chief Executive Officer functions in numerous Community Development and Economic Development entities in Metropolitan Washington DC.

I hold diplomas and degrees from Morehouse College, Johns Hopkins University, The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, and Harvard University School of Law, highly regarded Harvard Trade Union Program. My proficiency includes Labor Relations, Labor Unions, Public Service Employment, Public Employee Pensions and Retirements, Public Schools, and Education Policy. Others rely upon my contributions to media outlets, including but not limited to the Washington Post, Washington Times, Washington Examiner, Education Weekly, and The Wall Street Journal.

My teacher leadership actions have been the subject of a television show, the Senate Committee on Education and Labor – US Congress, and numerous articles. Most notably, I am the original writer and the sole derivative plaintiff in Saunders v. Hankerson et al., which contributed to changes in national labor law concerning fiduciary duty, union representation, and financial disclosure for all labor unions in the United States. I served as the former President of the Washington Teachers’ Union – Local 6 AFT-AFL-CIO, its former General Vice President for two terms, and Trustee of the Metropolitan Washington Labor Council in addition to other boards and commissions.

Presently, I am the elected Active Teacher Trustee to the District of Columbia Retirement Board (third term) and serve on the Investment Committee, which manages a 10 Billion dollar fund and chair the operations committee.
