A little history about me:
This is my second year teaching Digital Information Technology and my first year teaching Digital Design at LWHS. My husband and I are both Ocala natives. I am a product of the Marion County School District. I went to Anthony Elementary, North Marion Middle, North Marion High, and the College of Central Florida. I met my husband when I was a Pre School teacher at a Private Christian school and Jessie was in my class. We have been a happily blended family for almost 24 years now. I am blessed to be the mom of three awesome kids, they are all now adults. My oldest daughter Tasha, passed away at the tender age of 23 from complications of Cystic Fibrosis fifteen years ago. She is still missed and loved very much. My son Jeremy, is an electrician and has blessed me with two wonderful grandchildren. My Granddaugher Ariana is 13 and attends DMS. My Grandson Jacob is 10 and goes to OSE. Our youngest daughter Jessie is a nurse at North Florida Hospital.
We also have furry children. Taz is my our beloved 5 year old rat-terrier/chihuahua mix. My students hear storys about him often in class. We have a 10 year old rabbit named Hoppy that is very spoiled and demanding. Our newest family addition is Nola. She is an adorable tea-cup chuihuahua puppy. Because she is so beautiful and tiny, she is now the boss at our house.
What I do for fun:
When I am not teaching, planning, or grading I love to get outdoors as much as possible. I love going to theme parks (Sea World is my favorite), Kayaking on the Silver River, going for a ride on the motorcycle with my husband, and I love to go to Manatee beach. But my favorite things to do is spend time with my family, play with my pets, and sometimes just take a nap.
My favorite hobbies are:
Photography, editing, decorating, crosswords, and reading.
One thing that is interesting about me:
I don't do social media. I think that it takes up valuable time that I can't get back.
