Welcome to my portfolio for EME6609 at the University of Florida

In my current professional practice, I am deeply committed to innovating the design of an after-school program aimed at enhancing engagement and academic outcomes for vulnerable students. This initiative spans forty learning pods distributed across all ten regions of Guyana. It is particularly significant because many of these students were educated under a traditional ‘chalk and talk’ model of education, which has faced challenges in meeting the diverse needs of learners. Moreover, the ongoing pandemic has exacerbated disparities, further widening the gap between these students and their more resource-privileged peers. This context underscores the urgency and importance of my research and practice interests in developing effective solutions to bridge this educational divide.
