Degrees and Certifications:
Teaching has been my life-long ambition. At the age of eight, I would come home from school, head straight to my room, and begin teaching my classroom of 4 dolls! When I was ten, I joined the Future Teachers of Tomorrow and I got my first "real" students, a Kindergarten class at Flamingo Elementary in Hialeah, Florida.
About me...I was born in Miami, Florida, and both my parents were also! In May of 1995, I graduated magna cum laude with a Bachelors of Science in Elementary Education, 1-6, from Florida International University in Miami, Florida. I am a National Board Certified teacher with endorsements in ESOL, Gifted and Reading. In 2005, I met my husband and we, shortly thereafter, moved to Panama City Beach, Florida. In 2016, we moved to Ocklawaha, Florida with our 2 dogs, Sadie and Blu, and our cat, Spooky. We love living in the country and so do our pets!
Today I have the joy and privilege of being a 4th grade classroom teacher. I am surrounded by wonderful staff and great students at Harbour View Elementary. It is truly a dream come true!
