Teaching At THEE Toughest High School in California

According to California Educational Data I work at THEE toughest high school in California. It has been a blessed year by God. I have been enriched tremendously by the future black and brown leaders that are my students. Planning for the sports events, rallies and pumping students up for school activities have given my heart much joy. I have lost some students this year due to gang activity and some students have decided to change their whole life around because the importance of them breaking the cycles finally woke them up. It is a privilege and honor being a teacher at Locke High School. God has put on my heart to give 40% of my earnings from my book towards educational purposes and school supplies for my students next year. I am excited to see what God has for my students and I next school year. Everyday is a new day with new challenges, but with the strength from God anything is possible.

Please purchase a copy of my book. 40% of my earnings are going towards my students in financial need.

Pieces in the Dark holds many truths about the human emotions. The short heartfelt vignettes include emotional stories of heartbreak, love gone wrong, moving on, loss, identity, spirituality and a strong lust for inner freedom. Everything becomes into question and the meaning of life is then changed by all the events that occur throughout life. Is it possible to find joy and happiness in a world full of chaos? Does depression go away? Or, does it hibernate for awhile? What happens when the lights turn on and all your secrets are brought to the light? Every page will have you whispering “me too”.
