Lacrecia has been in the education field for 18 years serving in many capacities; a classroom teacher, Academic Dean, Math Coordinator, District Curriculum Coordinator, District/ School Curriculum Specialist, District STEM Coordinator, District Title I coordinator, STEM/Innovation Director, and High Principal. She lives to inspire, motivate, change, and impact student lives by offering them a greater future through the lens of education.
