All students can be successful learners. I have “high expectations” for my students and am willing to do whatever it takes to make my lessons interesting, relevant and find different ways with diverse strategies to introduce content. I like to introduce the big picture when we start a new and difficult unit, showing the students through a road map on how we are going to get there. We take the baby steps with the content and suddenly, when we put the pieces together my students beam with pride that they are able to accomplish the more difficult tasks.
I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science from the University of Florida. I also have an M.B.A. from St Leo University. I have worked in public education for almost 9 years and believe all students can be successful. I am certified to teach in North Carolina.
I have been teaching middle school for over 9 years as of 2015.
I have always participated in after school activities such as science club and tennis coach. I have been on the school improvement team for many years. I also helped implement a positive behavior plan in the school and have been team leader and grade level chair.
