5th Grade Team

Welcome back, Wildcats! I am so excited to be teaching 5th grade science this year! Originally, I am from New Jersey but I moved to Florida for college. I graduated from Southeastern University with my Bachelors Degree in Secondary Biology Education in 2005. I enjoy spending time with my husband and three sons, going to the beach, cooking, reading and working out. I am certified in K-6 grade Elementary Education as well as 6-12th grade Biology.  This is my 5th year teaching, but my 8th year at MAC.  Previously, I was the K/1st grade para, the 2nd/3rd grade para, the P.E. para and the 6th grade science teacher!  I have thoroughly enjoyed working with all grade levels of students in different capacities.  I am looking forward to an exciting and fun school year, as we explore SCIENCE!
