Hello Parents and Students,
It is my passion to be a "Terrier" who teaches Earth/Space and Life Science at Port Charlotte Middle School (#1 School in Charlotte County FL). "Go Terriers!"
I am a proud alumnus of University of South Florida "Go Bulls!" and a member of the USF teachers' honor society "SCAT". I was inspired to return to college in my 40's to earn my degree in Education after working as a volunteer at my oldest son's highschool. I assisted a teacher who was an alumnus of USF that received a grant to remediate students who struggled in reading and all highschool subjects. This teacher made such a positive impression on me because she achieved incredible results that truly changed the lives of her students. Her dedication sparked a new career and life path for me in the field of education. This is my sixth year teaching and my fourth year teaching science here at PCMS and I am "Happy to Be Here!"
As a mother of three grown children (college graduates), I bring this invaluable experience into my classroom. College football gets interesting when your children and their spouses are fans of three highly competitive schools Florida State, University of Florida, and University of South Florida. I am also a grandmother to 4 year old identical twin girls who truly fill my heart with love. I have lived in the Port Charlotte area for 15 years and in the state of Florida for 30 years.
My hobbies include saltwater fishing, writing, and cooking.
Thank you for taking the time to read my biography and get to know me better.
