A Little About Me...

I am originally from Buffalo, NY.  I moved to the sunshine state about 7 years ago for a teaching job.  This will be my 7th year of teaching.  First, I was an ESE teacher for 3 years where I worked with students in grades 3-5.  Then, I spent 2 years as a 4th grade teacher.  Currently, I am going into my 2nd year as a 3rd grade teacher.  Out of all my opportunities teaching in the classroom, I have to say teaching 3rd grade students has been the best experience I have ever had in the classroom.

  • SOME FUN FACTS ABOUT ME...

    • I have a twin sister, her name is Melissa!  She is a very talented Graphic Designer.  My sister works for a Billionaire; the owner of my hometown's NFL Buffalo Bills & NHL Sabres sports teams.  How cool is that!?!
    • I have only one family member that lives in Florida.  That would be my nephew, Jacob.  The rest of my family lives back in Buffalo, NY.  I always try to persuade my family to move to Florida, it has yet to work.  Fingers crossed it will happen someday! 
    • I have only been out of the country twice in my life... when I was younger my family would go to Canada to see the Niagara Falls.  Most recently I traveled to the Dominican Republic for vacation with family and friends.  That was my most favorite trip of all times because I was able to swim with sharks and held a stingray in the middle of the Caribbean Sea.  I look forward to traveling to more places in my future!
    • I have 2 Orange Tabby cats.  Their names are Cupcake and Cookie.  They are the sweetest cats I have ever had.  An interesting fact about my two cats is, I rescued them from my old school as kittens.  They were found outside of my school.  The moment I laid my eyes on them, I just knew I needed to be their Mama.  Nowadays, Cupcake and Cookie are relaxing at home during the school day.  Taking lots of naps, enjoying a bite of food every once in awhile and playing with their cat toys.  They surely are living a life of luxury.
