Hi Wildcats!!!

Welcome to Second Grade.

I am very excited to be a part of the MAC Second Grade team!



Let me tell you a little about me…


I graduated from Kathleen High School and then moved on to PSC, where I earned a Degree in Early Childhood Education and Management. Afterward, I continued my education and went to the University of South Florida where I earned my BS in Early Childhood. I now hold a teaching certification in Pre-K to 3rd grade.

I have been teaching for 20+ years with a passion for watching students grow throughout the years. My goal is to give each student the opportunity to grow to their maximum potential. I strive to make each student’s experience of school a fun and rewarding learning adventure, giving them the foundation they will need for the next level of education. I will use technology, differentiated instruction, and hands on lessons as much as possible throughout the year to help meet all of my student's needs. I am looking forward to working with your family this year; it is going to be a great adventure.
