Jamila Karimah Eagles

I am currently a graduate student at the University of Georgia (Go Bulldogs) working on a Master's degree in Mathematics Education. I recently graduated Summa Cum Laude from North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University ( "AGGIE PRIDE") in Greensboro, NC with a Bachelor's of Science Degree in Mathematics Education.

Originally I am from a small town called Southport, NC which is located between Wilmington, NC and Myrtle Beach, SC. I chose the University of Georgia for my gratuate studies because of its outstanding Mathematics Education Department.

I am a member of The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics and also the Mathematics Education Student Association.

I am the oldest of two children. My sister Taseda is currently working on a Bachelor's of Science degree in Elementary Education. My mom Daisy is also an educator as well as my aunt Edith. I guess there is a history of educators in my family. My father is a longshoreman.

If everything goes as planned I will complete my master's degree by August of 1998. Shortly after I complete my master's degree I plan to be married. My fiance is Corey Brown. He is a recent graduate of The Citadel, The Military College of South Carolina and is currently employed by Roadway Express Inc..

My long term educational goal is to complete a Ph.D in Mathematics Education within the next ten years or by the age of 33.
