Degrees and Certifications:
I want to share a little about myself: I was born in Newbury Port, Massachussetts and moved to Florida when I was 12. I graduated from Williston High School and then preceded to attend CFCC and St. Leo University and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Business Management and Accounting. Upon graduation I took a book keeping position with a construction company that ultimately closed. I was then approached by a daycare owner who offered me a job teaching Early Head Start. I worked as an Early Head Start teacher for 3 years then moved into the office and became a Family Service Advocate. I held that position for 2 years when I moved up to Records Quality Assurance Specialist for 1 year before I realized how much I missed being in the classroom. I took the state teaching certifications and became a teacher. In the process of landing a job at Fessenden as a Pre K teacher I decided to get a Masters Degree in Early Childhood Education through the University of Pheonix. I have been teaching at Fessenden for 10 years- 8 years of that was spent in Pre-K and I have been in 1st grade the last two years. I have been married for 6 years and have 2 children my son Dylan is 21 and my daughter Taryn is 16. I live about 53 miles from the school. I have an open line of communication and encourage you to contact me with any questions or concerns.
