Degrees and Certifications:
Hi everyone! This is my fifteenth year in education. I graduated with my undergraduate degree in 2005 (in Elementary Education) from Florida Atlantic University, and graduated with my Masters degree in 2008 (in Teaching Reading) from Nova Southeastern University. Both Universities are in Florida, and I took a lot of online classes. I have taught all of the grade levels in elementary school. Teaching is my passion, and I could not imagine doing anything else. My favorite subjects to teach are reading and science. Along the way, I have had the opportunity to coach other teachers too! I have had many family members and friends serve in the U.S. Military. I enjoy reading, Zumba, dancing, traveling, and the beach. I have two small dogs, Panni and Oreo. I love flair pens, Pumpkin Spice Lattes, succulents/cacti, the colors rose gold and aqua, iced coffee, Sunkist, rolos, and peanut butter cups. I love peppermint bark (chocolate) and peppermint candles around Christmas time. I look forward to learning about you as we work together this year.
