I have been in education what seems like my whole life, and I love every second of it. I earned my Bachelors Degree at Nova Southeastern University in 2005 and my Master of Educational Leadership in 2010.
I have been teaching for nearly 12 full years now. It's hard to believe it's gone by so fast. Every school year feels shorter! I have taught all grade levels from kindergarten through 5th grade, but I have spent the bulk of my time teaching intermediate grades. I have taught students with exceptional needs since my very first year of teaching. I have also taught English for speakers of other languages. Currently, I am an English language teacher to children in China! They live 12 hours apart from us, so I usually teach in the middle of the night or during the early morning hours when everyone else that I know is asleep! It's a great adventure!
Currently, I live in Land O' Lakes with my husband and my 3 kids. My two oldest kids are in high school, and my youngest is just about to finish 4th grade. As if that wasn't enough, I'm also the mommy of 2 dogs named Shaggy and Chewie (short for Chewbacca, of course) and 3 cats named Oliver, Salem, and Sully (all named after Disney characters, ha).
I'd love to get to know you and help you with any class you need practice in whether it's English and Language Arts or Math, Science or Social Studies, maybe even Espaol! I can help you with any of your learning needs. I hope I get to meet you soon so you can join me on our very own learning adventure!
