Degrees and Certifications:
First of all, Welcome to Fifth Grade! I will be your Math and Science teacher this year. I am team teaching with Mrs. Shearon. She will be teaching ELA and Social Studies.
I graduated from the University of Central Florida with a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education in 2007. This will be my fourteenth year teaching in Marion County. I have taught third and fifth grade at Eighth Street, South Ocala, Legacy and now I am excited to start my first year here at Ocala Springs Elementary. I have a passion for math and science and I hope to pass that on to you through fun and engaging lessons and hands-on activities!
I am married to my highschool sweetheart and we have lots of pets. I LOVE all animals and always take in any in need of rescue and make them part of my family. I have a dog, three cats, 2 turtles, too many fish to count, a bird, a rabbit and a mouse. The bunny and mouse are actually my class pets and will be living in our classroom this year! I also love sports, especially Florida Gators football. Go Gators! I love being in The Swamp on Game Day. I also spend many weekends at Walt Disney World as an annual passholder. Sometimes I like to take it easy and lounge by my pool or take a trip to the beach. And of course, I always make time for friends and family.
I look foward to learning more about each of you!
