Degrees and Certifications:
Bachelor of Arts Degree in English with a Minor in Secondary Education - University of Florida, May 2006 State of Florida Professional Educator's Certificate in English grades 6-12 with ESOL Endorsement.
I was born in Huntington, Long Island and raised in a small beach town in Florida called Englewood. I attended and graduated from the University of Florida in 2006 with a major in English and a minor in Secondary Education - I was also a member of the Fightin' Gator Marching Band.
After several years in Gainesville and working various jobs, I finally decided to pursue my teaching career. I took my first position at a public charter school in Lake City as a 6th grade Language Arts teacher. The next year I accepted a position at Columbia High School where I taught English IV and English IV Honors for over 3 years.
During that time, I met my husband. He and his family are long-time Ocala residents, so I set my sights on finding a teaching position in Marion County. In late September of 2017, I started teaching English I and English III at Forest High School. I am incredibly lucky to be part of the Forest family and look forward to teaching here for many years.
