BIO and PICTURES OF OUR STAFF:
Kimberly Evans, Ph.D.: (owner and operator) I am a former elementary teacher, elementary and high school Principal and consultant to many educational institutions. I have been in education since 1990. I am a Marygrove College (89), University of Michigan (92), and Wayne State University(00 & 05) Alumni. I am the mother of three wonderful adult children and “GIGi” to two wonderful grandsons. My hobbies are reading, cooking and spending time hanging with my two favorite boys.
Kierra Willingham: I’m currently a High School Science teacher. I have enjoyed teaching a variety of sciences (Biology, Anatomy & Physiology, Earth Science, Environmental Science, and General Science) in the Metro Detroit Area for the past five years. I began my educational journey at University of Detroit Mercy where I earned a B.S. in Biology. Soon after I married and began to grow my family. I later returned to school to pursue my love of education. I enrolled at Eastern Michigan University where I earned my teaching certificate with a major in Biology and a minor in Chemistry.
I’m a mother of two amazing boys. My boys and I spend our free time baking and decorating cookies, playing at “the brown park”, going to the movies, watching Big Hero 6, and visiting GiGi. When I’m not with my boys I’m normally developing my lesson plans and discovering new and interesting ways to keep my students engaged. I experience true joy when my students learn and understand new concepts and they don’t even realize they are doing so!
Michelle Evans: I have a B.A. in Applied Psychology from University of Illinois at Chicago, and a Master’s in Social Work from Wayne State University. I enjoy photography, reading, blogging, and website designing. Oh, did I mention that I love Makeup and I have a collection that would make any makeup geek jealous!
