Degrees and Certifications:
I was born in Texas but grew up here in Ocala. I was a student myself here at Shady Hill and loved every minute of it. I went out of state to college and attended Southern Connecticut State University, where I graduated with a degree in early childhood education and psychology. This will be my 10th year of teaching and my 5th year teaching 3rd grade. I am married to a wonderful man, Mr. Carty, who is a firefighter in Gainesville. I have two beautiful girls; Sydney is a 6th grader this year and Gracie is in 2nd grade. We all love to be outdoors and try new adventures together. My favorite thing to do in my free time is to read and exercise.
