I received my BSW from the University of South Florida in Tampa. I have 35 years of experience in social work and in teaching students, 5K-8th grade. I incorporate activities in lessons and try to include as many senses in order to help children learn and retain the subject content. I have extensive experience working with children with special needs, children on the spectrum, and children with ADHD and ODD, having worked as a behavior modification therapist. I treat each child as an individual and can encourage and deescalate as needed. I can be a support to homeschoolers, and I assign work in between sessions as needed. Thank you for considering me to partner with you to meet your child's educational goals.
Undergraduate Degree: University of South Florida-Main Campus - Bachelor of Science, Social Work
I am interested in sports- I love football, basketball, and UFC/ MMA. The Gators are my favorite team. My favorite athletes are Tom Brady and Michael Jordan. I enjoy music and play percussion instruments and sing in my church’s band. I love to camp, in my RV or in a tent on the Appalachian Trail. I hike for miles with my son. I "RV" with my husband. I enjoy Sudoku puzzles, crossword puzzles, and jigsaw puzzles. I have two pups- Allie Gator who is a beagle and Tyson Fury who is a boxer/ pit mix. I live in the Sunshine State, home of the Florida Gators. I love the mountains more than the beaches.
