Hello! I am a wife and mother of three boys ages 21, 18, and 14. My husband and I have been married for 24 years and have raised our boys here in Ocala. I stayed at home while my boys were small and I began working at Ward-Highlands when my youngest started Kindergarten. You could say that we have all ‘grown-up’ here!
I have worked in ESE, K, 1st, and 2nd grade as a para-professional but I finally found a home in 3rd grade for the last three years as a certified teacher. My boys have often joked that I just couldn’t pass 3rd and that’s why I stayed😊.
3rd grade is a big year! Students become avid readers, surprisingly witty writers, deep thinking mathematicians, curious scientists and thoughtful citizens. They become more independent, responsible, and self aware. It's a grade of endless positive possibilities and that is why I love it!
Regardless of circumstances, here’s to making this year the best year yet!
