Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to my website, if this is the first time you have visited! A little bit about me: 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 20 years, spending 16 years at Vineland Elementary in 5th grade and the last three and a half years here at L.A. Ainger teaching 6th grade and 8th grade Language Arts.
I understand that this is a difficult time for many people world-wide and for the members of our state and the Englewood community and I hope you are all well and doing o.k. We will begin Edgenuity online instruction for all L.A. Ainger students on Monday, March 30. I will be monitoring your child's progress and contacting them through Edgenuity email. Although students work at their own pace, they are encouraged to strive for 50 minutes of online instruction for each of their "core content" classes. I will be posting assignments on my website just as a guideline for where they should be each week. If you have any questions, concerns, or problems, please contact the school or myself. Below I have posted the best hours to reach me and the times that I will be available online. However, feel free to email me and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
Thank you for your continued support with your child's education. Stay safe.
