I am a teacher of the Marion County Public School educating students since January 2001. I have taught Health at Lake Weir Middle School, 5th grade for 12+ years here at Ward-Highlands Elementary, and now have settled into 5 years of teaching 4th grade. I am a wife and mother to two beautiful girls. My husband is also in education and currently a Dean at Liberty Middle school. My daughters attend Ward-Highlands Elementary in 5th grade and Osceola Middle School in 7th grade. Through my teaching, I have learned that every student and individual is different and each experience of teaching is different. I may have a plan, but I never go into each day seeing it accomplished as it may look on paper. I have many students that need a variety of presentations to understand and that is honestly what it is all about. I love personally learning from my students what works best for them. The learning process is a team effort and takes the school, parents, and student to make it a success.
