Ms. Denise's favorite moment of her career so far was in her first year working at Bluford School. She was a 1:1 paraprofessional for a special needs child. She shared, "watching her learn, recognize, and even write some of the letters of the alphabet. That was when I realized how much I really love working with our students here at Bluford especially the children that may need a little extra help."
In her spare time, Ms. Denise enjoys spending time with family, babysitting her beautiful granddaughter Avrilyn, shopping, reading, and watching movies. At some point she would love to visit Paris and see the Eiffel Tower
