I have enjoyed my career as a K-12 entrepreneur, classroom teacher, university faculty member, and researcher. I dedicate my next phase to improving K-12 education, moving our nation beyond racism, and filling the world with music. I am focusing on effective philanthropic and non-profit endeavors. My next efforts will involve teaming with policymakers, educators, activists, and musicians to make a positive impact on students, teachers, and people across racial and ethnic communities.
