Mrs. Instructional/Curriculum Coaches

My name is Mrs. Arnold and I've been in the world of education for 12.5 years. I was born and raised in Ocala, Fl. I attended Eigth Street Elementary, Osceola Middle, and Vanguard High School. I graduated from Florida A&M University (FAMU) with a Bachelor's of Science in Broadcast Journalism and I graduated from the same university with a Master's Degree in Educational Leadership. I love th colors ORANGE and GREEN. :0) I have a son that is in the 5th grade and a tutrle and fish as pets. 

I began my teaching career in Tallahassee, Fl. where I tuaght 2nd grade for 3 years. I moved back to Ocala, and I've been here ever since. I've taught 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th grades throughout my teaching career. I'm currently the math/sciencd coach at Anthony Elementary School. My ultimate goal is to open my own school one day for troubled teens.


My name is Karli Raney and I am the Literacy Coach here at Anthony Elementary. The 2018-2019 school year will be my 1styear in this position.  I graduated from the University of South Florida with my Education degree as well as my ESOL Endorsement in 2012. My husband and I were both born and raised here in Ocala. We are parents to our beautiful son, Brantley. I am very excited and motivated to be the Literacy Coach at Anthony Elementary! It is a rewarding job that brings a variety of tasks.  As a coach, I will work directly with teachers in a school providing classroom-based demonstrations, collaborative and one-on-one support, and facilitating teacher inquiry and related professional development.  In addition, I work alongside the School-Based Leadership Team to collect and analyze data, interpret, and use it to guide instructional decisions.  I also have the privilege of working with our students in grades K-5 to provide small group support as well as celebrating successes, which in return builds students’ sense of engagement in the ownership of learning. My main goal each day is to help make our school the best it can be! This year it is “Game ON!” We are ready and determined to get our “A” game on and do great things. GO THOROUGHBREDS!
