  • Hello Tigers and Parents! 

    I joined the Fessenden Elementary Family this year as Art Lab Educator. Born and raised right here in Marion County, I graduated from Vanguard High School in 1988. I graduated from Florida A&M University in Tallahassee with a bachelor's degree in Graphic Design. In 1992 I returned to Marion County where I began my career as a graphic artist at the Ocala Star-Banner newspaper. I also worked at The Atlanta Journal-Constitution in Atlanta, Georgia, and The Palm Beach Post newspaper in West Palm Beach, where I worked for 16 years before returning home again.

    I began my career as an art teacher about 3 years ago. I am so excited to be teaching and to have your child in my class!

     

    Go Tigers!
