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.
