Sierra Suggs

Sierra Suggs received her Bachelor of Arts (History/Spanish) from the University of Mississippi, and she is currently getting her Masters of Education (Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment) from Walden University. 

After earning her B.A., Sierra moved to teach in Houston, Texas to utilize her Spanish-speaking skills at a high-risk, predominantly-Hispanic charter school.

Though she has experience teaching ESL/LEP students, Sierra also has experience instructing students with learning differences and/or intellectual disabilities. Suggs was influenced to teach students with learning differences from her younger, autistic sister.

Since she began teaching, she has been in various leadership roles: coached volleyball, managed shot clocks for basketball, directed music and vocals for the Bye Bye Birdie at her former school, and she has volunteered for various school events. 

Suggs is also a member of the following organizations: International Dyslexia Association, National Association for Bilingual Education, Louisiana Creole Research Association (Xavier University), Continental Societies, Incorporated, and additional service organizations.
