D. C. Palm, who is a native of Chicago, Illinois, unabashedly loves the Lord. She attended Chicago Public Schools before matriculating to and receiving a Bachelor of Arts degree in both Business Administration and Psychology from Olivet Nazarene University located in Bourbonnais, Illinois. After graduation, she completed Post-Baccalaureate Studies in Elementary Education and Computer Technology through a consortium between Concordia University and City-Wide Colleges. Later, D. C. received a Master of Arts degree in Curriculum and Supervision from Chicago State University. Since, she has received a Secondary Education Endorsement in Social Sciences through Aurora and Brigham Young Universities.
D. C. has been an educator and Dean of Students for more than two and a half decades. She is a self-described news junkie. Reading, writing poetry, and traveling are her favorite pastimes. Some of her greatest joys have come from being nominated to Who’s Who Among America’s Teachers six times and spending time with her family.
D. C. lives by Ralph Waldo Emerson’s quote, “What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.”
