I am a National Board Certified Teacher in Santa Rosa County, Florida. According to Florida's Department of Education, I am in the top 10 to 30% of all teachers in the State of Florida in Math and Language Arts. In 2005, I was honored to be Teacher of the Year at Pea Ridge Elementary School. I was a district finalist for Santa Rosa County's Teacher of the Year that same year. Over the years, I have written and been awarded many grants. I have over twenty years teaching experience collectively in grades 1 through 5. Currently, I am a fifth grade teacher. I am rated as a Highly Effective Teacher.
My class theme is Jacobs' Geometric Kids. I believe in providing a "well-rounded" education to my students through scaffolding and differentiated instruction. Like a "diamond", my students need guidance, instruction and love in order to "shine".
