We strive to prepare our children as respectable, responsible, caring, and knowledgeable long-life learning children. We encourage success leading to self-reliance and economic, social, and political contributions to society. We believe children who know their African heritage have unlimited potential; they can flourish and bring about a brighter world if appropriately nourished.

I started this business because my nephew passed away from Sickle Cell Anemia disease at 9, and I wanted to bring awareness to early detection. The other reason was adolescent suicide and crime among children under 15. I believed there was a lack of Black History and Culture taught in the community and schools. Children need to know who they are, where they come from, and why.

I wanted to provide an exclusive environment for infants to 6 years old while providing them education in their most formative years about the history and culture of all people of color and the emphasis on African ancestry in teaching and learning.

Studies have shown that from infants to five years old, a child’s brain develops more than any other period in a child’s life, and I want to capture that.

My goal here at ShaModd and Me is to implement healthy eating habits starting at youth. Getting children introduced to a plethora of natural fruits and vegetables and letting them know that it is okay to eat them is the number 1 goal.

Assistant Director



I graduated from THE best HBCU in Missouri; Lincoln University of Missouri with a Bachelors in Journalism (emphasis in editing/writing) with a minor in English. My purpose here at ShaModd and Me is to not only get children prepared for kindergarten, but to also aid them to shoot for the stars. I am very education driven, which means your child will learn advanced learning skill outside of their age group.
