I taught 5 years of Kindergarten and last year I decided to try 3rd grade and love it! This year and I went back to Kindergarten and I am excited for a great year. I work at a charter school and I am also the Primary Education Director. I am in charge of professional development for all of our K-2 teachers. I have certifications in Elementary Education, ESOL, ESE and my Reading Endorsement.
I love to use a little bit of everything; Whole Brain, Marzano, and some of my own creations.
Received the Parent Choice Award during my first year of teaching.
I attended Daytona State and received my Associates Degree in Elementary Education. I then transferred to the University of Central Florida and completed my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education. I also received my Master's Degree in Teacher Leadership with an emphasis in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Central Florida.
I am married to my high school sweetheart. We have two beautiful children, Kara is 11 and Kallen is 5. I enjoy reading, baking, gardening and going to the beach.
