After a successful career in banking and a family relocation from Virginia to Florida, I decided to change my career to elementary education. This will be my 9th year teaching second grade. I am currently teaching in an inclusion classroom. This is very challenging but worth all the hard work. I have been the 2nd grade team leader for several years and as of last year I am our team's collaborative facilitator.
I do not have a specific teaching style. My style changes to fit my students and what I am teaching.
In 2012 and 2015 I was chosen as our school's teacher of the year. I was given the opportunity to represent our school in the running for district teacher of the year.
Bachelor of Arts degree from Old Dominion University
