I want to welcome you all to first grade! It's an exciting year where a lot of learning takes place.
I moved to Arcadia and started seventh grade at DMS. I graduated from DeSoto High School in 1997. I went on to graduate from Florida Southern College in 2001 with a BS in Elementary Education. I orginally went with the intentions of being an accountant, but I quickly realized I wasn't passionate enough about it to continue. After graduation, I finished the school year substituting at West. I thought it would be a great opportunity to get my foot in the door. Apparently it was! I was hired as a 2nd grade teacher for the following school year. I have been teaching for ten years now. All eight years have been spent at West (six years in 2nd and four years in 1st).
I have been married for six years now. My husband, Dalan, and I met in 7th grade at Vacation Bible School! We dated in college, then got married after five years. We have two wonderfully, challenging young boys. Brock is 5 years old and Corbin is 4 years old. Our third little one,Gaige, is on the way! The attached picture isn't the best, but take a look at the Gilmore family. They are definitely your typical boys ... always rough-housing, continuously bouncing from one place to another, and never a clean face or hand. Corbin gets more bumps and bruises than Brock at this age; he seems more adventerous right now. I wonder if that's a sign of what is to come or if he's getting it out of his system now.

Enough about me, I have created this website for you, mom & dad. If you have any suggestions about what you would like to see, please email me. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org. I'm always looking for new pages to include. I look forward to reading your suggestions!
