Degrees and Certifications:
I have been an educator for twenty-one years. Sixteen of those were as a classroom teacher, and 5 as a Reading Coach. Thirteen of these years have been at Saddlewood. I was born and raised in Ocala, and attended Marion County Public Schools. Mr. Jones and I have two sons. Steven is a freshman in college, and Stuart is an 8th grader at Howard Middle. I am looking to a new year with a brand new group of fifth graders and am excited to be teaching with Mrs. Shackles.
