This is my 5th year of teaching in Orlando, Florida. My first three years were spent working with children with behavioral disabilities. Last year, I switched to Kindergarten and feel that I have found my true calling!! I attended the University of Southern Indiana in Evansville, IN and majored in Advertising/Public Relations. I was blessed to find out that I was able to teach even though I did not graduate in this field. I was given the amazing honor of being Rookie Teacher of the Year and Star Teacher of the Year my first year of teaching. I am also very active in helping ESOL students in after school tutoring and helping 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students prepare for the FCAT on Saturday mornings.
