Welcome Wildcats!!  I earned my Degree in Education from Florida Southern College.  I have taught 1st and 2nd grade, at Lake Shipp Elementary, Bartow Academy and Valleyview Elementary. I have taught second and third grade at South McKeel where I was also the K-5 literacy specialist, coaching teachers and providing demonstration lessons.   I also earned my National Board for Professional Teaching Standards Certification. I look forward to making a positive difference in the lives of your child  by providing an atmosphere that encourages a desire to discover and question the world around us while nurturing a sense of reverence and respect for both self and others.
