I earned my Bachelor's Degree in Education from Warner Southern University in 1990.


This is my 15th year teaching.  I began my teaching career by spending 4 years in a kindergarten classroom in Lake Placid, Florida. I then took 10 years off to be a mom and raise my two children.  However, I continued to work with children at church and volunteering in my children's classrooms.  After returning to teaching, I taught one year in third grade in Port Charlotte.  I then joined the West family and I am currently in my 10th year teaching 3rd grade here in Arcadia.


I currently live in Port Charlotte, Florida with my children, KaLeigh and Jeramie.  KaLeigh is in her second year at the University of Florida.  Go Gators!!!! Jeramie is a senior in high school this year.  We have one pet, a dog named Trixie.  I love spending time with my family, going to the beach, reading, and scrapbooking. I look forward to a great year with my wonderful students.
