Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year. I graduated from FL Southern College with a Bachelor of Science Degree and Masters Degree in Education. I am certified to teach all subjects in grades K-6, ESOL, and K-12 Exceptional Student Education. I am currently the ESE Teacher for 4th-6th grade and my partner Tari Golphin is serving K-3 students. Over the last 17 years, I have worked within many grade levels and positions, supporting the learning needs of Mckeel. I look forward to working with all of my students and their families to make this year a success.
"Education is not the learning of facts, but the training of the mind to think." --Albert Einstein
Students are the leaders of the future. I believe that we must teach students to think through problems and become problem solvers. Students must feel safe and loved to learn effectively. I look forward to a wonderful year in learning.
Honors: Non-Instructional Person of the Year (2005) and Mckeel Academy Central's Teacher of the Year (2015)
