I've had the pleasure of teaching for the last 16 years. Although, as with everything, I've had my ups and downs. I would not trade my profession for any other.
I love to have my students participate on hands on activities and research. I feel that if they don't experience things on their own or are actively engaged while learning, then they don't fully understand the concept that is being taught.
Voted Teacher of the Year for 2013-2014 school year!
I am a graduate of Florida International University. I graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Psychology and continued to get my Elementary School Certification.
I am the proud mother of two. I love spending time with my two boys just as much as I love teaching. The wonder of childhood never ceases to amaze me.
