Strickland explained that she shared the tweet with her daughter and didn't find it racist. She also cited her work with African-American students.

"I have devoted years of my life to educating students in a predominantly African American school and was named Teacher of the Year for the predominantly African American Portsmouth school system last year. Partly because of my exemplary record of working well and achieving success in an urban school system, I was hired this fall as Assistant Principal at Booker T. Washington."
