I have been teaching for 17 years--all middle school! It's in my blood! Currently, I am teaching 7th grade Gifted and Talented & 8th grade Pre-AP English.
My teaching style is a blend of Pre-AP concepts and GT approaches. Students in my classroom are dared to think--and to have fun doing it! My goal is to inspire students to take core academic concepts to a creative level. This way, students grow by leaps and bounds while discovering and sharpening their gifts and talents.

I'm a Florida girl that calls Texas her home. I still make the annual beach trip to satisfy that empty space, but it's always good to return home!
