I was born in Hollywood, Florida and grew up in the North Miami area, attending Norland Elementary and Norland Junior High. After graduating from Miami Norland Senior High School, I obtained my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from the University of South Florida. I taught preschool at A Children's Carousel for three years while attending Florida International University for my Master's Degree in Elementary Education. Next, I substituted and worked at after school care programs for five years. This is my 20th year at Everglades Elementary. I have also taught fourth grade and third grade. My husband, Farrell, is Canadian. He spent 19 years a chef there, and now works for Sysco Food Services. We've been married 17 years and have two wonderful boys. Jeremy is in 10th grade at Cypress Bay and Matthew is a 7th grader at Tequesta Trace Middle.
