Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to my website! Although I am not a Florida native, I have lived in the Venice/Englewood area for the past 40 years. My husband is a Lieutenant for Englewood Area Fire District and I have two sons who both went through Charlotte County schools. Currently, they are active military in the Air Force and Army. I attended the University of South Florida and received a B.A. and M.A. in Communication and an additional M.A. in Education. I have been teaching in Charlotte County for the last 18 years, spending 16 years at Vineland Elementary in 5th grade and the last two years at L.A. Ainger teaching 6th grade Language Arts. This year, I am excited to be teaching 8th grade Language Arts. This will give me the opportunity to be with many of my former students. I look forward to meeting you this school year!
