A little bit about me... 

Welcome to second grade! I have been an educator for a little over twelve years, and have spent all of those years teaching at Taylor Ranch. I've had the pleasure of teaching first, second, and third grade. This will be my seventh year teaching second, and I absolutely love it!  

I was born and raised in Florida, and have lived most of my life here. I graduated from the University of Florida with my Master's degree in Education. I am also a graduate of Venice High School and even Taylor Ranch Elementary. It has been an amazing opportunity to return to this wonderful school as a teacher! 

In my spare time I enjoy traveling and working on my photography skills with my husband. We love to spend time outdoors, especially biking or hiking. I also love to exercise, read, and spend quality time with my family.  

In my classroom I hope students will learn that it is okay to struggle, make mistakes, and take risks. That is how we learn and get better at things. If we never try, we can never fail or succeed! I encourage my students to ask questions, think for themselves, and support their reasoning. I try to cultivate a sharing, caring, and accepting classroom culture. My classroom is like a second home to me and my students are like my second "family." Students should feel a part of this "family" and be comfortable to learn and be themselves! Teaching isn't just a job to me, but a career that I deeply love and enjoy!      

My favorite quote is: I call my students "my kids" because in our year together they aren't just kids on my class list, they become a part of my heart.
