Degrees and Certifications:
I am the proud mother of 4 grown children. Two are mine, and two I inherited through marriage. All but one live in here in Florida. My one daughter lives in Kentucky. I have 8 grandchildren, and 1 furbaby, named Lucky. I am still raising children, as I have 2 of my granddaughers living with me. I have been in education, in one fashion or another, for over 25 years. I have taught almost every grade, in elementary, but mostly upper elementary. I have also had the pleasure, and honor, to have been a literacy coach and professional development specialist, for Marion County. This has enabled me to work closely with teachers, and help them develop their craft. I am now excited to continue my newest venture, working with our gifted and talented students, and helping them grow and develop to their full potential. When I am not working at school, I enjoy being outside, spending time with my family, reading, working on puzzles, playing board games, and working my direct sales business.
