    I was born to Calvin and Shirley Fairbanks, two educators, in Oklahoma City, Ok and am the youngest of three. Upon graduating from high school, I attended Spelman College in Atlanta, Ga where I received a Bachelor of Arts in Spanish. After graduating from Spelman, I went back home and attended the University of Central Oklahoma from which I received a Master's degree in Bilingual Education with a TESL option. I've been teaching for six years. I consider myself a continual student of life and education.  
    To me, money does not make one successful but, waking up every morning and doing what you love, does. Because of that I live by this motto:
    "Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has to overcome while trying to succeed." Booker T Washington
