Bachelor of Sciences in Psychology, University of Florida
I've been teaching for twenty years. I began my career at Osceola Middle School, then moved to Belleview Middle School, where I taught for six years. At Lake Weir High School I taught Intensive Math for ten years, and this is my sixth year teaching Liberal Arts Math. I have a Bachelor's of Science degree from the University of Florida and I am a veteran of the United States Marine Corps.
Growing up, my family and I moved around the country a lot. I was always "the new kid", arrivng at a new school halfway through the year. I can relate to an uncomfortable, nervous feeling about being in school: the feeling of trepidation one may get at the smell of the school bus; the fear of not knowing anyone; even that sinking feeling in the morning when it's time to get up. If you don't know about any of this, good for you!! If you can relate, I think you'll find I have a ton of empathy for others and one of my big things is making people feel happy to come to my classroom.
