I am starting my 11th year in Education! I taught in Florida, Georgia, and I am currently in North Carolina. I am a full time Literacy Coach.
I believe in hands on experiences for each subject area. I use the Readers (Daily 5), Writers & Math Workshop Model. This allows students to practice a variety of skills and have multiple opportunites to work in small groups or one on one with the teacher.
I Graduated with honors and awards in 2002 from Central Florida Community College. Graduated with honors and awards in 2004 from Jacksonville University with a B.S. degree in Elementary Education. Graduated with honors and awards in 2007 from University of North Florida with a M.Ed. degreee in Education Leadership. I have also added Reading Specialist to my Certificate.
I am a U.S.M.C. wife with a little girl and 2 loving dogs! I also have a long-term goal of working in a college athletic office!
