Dr. T is the EXAMPLE and not the EXCEPTON of a Phenomenal Woman. Leading the way, Dr. T demonstrates that the proverbial glass ceiling can be shattered and broken. With my back tall, shoulder's squared and head held high. I know being a Black woman who is both educated and an engineer will no longer be uncommon but instead be achievable and obtainable for other's who also look like me.

Having Dr. T as an instructor was beyond a wonderful experience. She has a contagious personality that is equal parts inspiring, positive, invigorating, and empowering. She fosters a positive learning environment that PROMOTES curiosity! She has an unbelievable ability to speak to you at your knowledge level and lift your understanding to a deeper level without making you feel foolish. This comes from her vast knowledge of what she is teaching and it shows in her ability to communicate it. Honestly one of the best teachers I have ever had!
