This is my 16th year of teaching. Before teaching I was a paraprofessional for six years while going to school to get my degree. I graduated from University of South Florida with my Bachelor's degree in Secondary Social Science Education and my Master's degree from Walden University. I live in Palmetto, Fl with my husband, 9 year old son and dog, Bella and cat, Cali. I am a huge sports fan (Go Gators! Go Rays!) who loves to read historical fiction and non fiction. My favorite historical figure is Abraham Lincoln.
My love of history goes way back to when I was in 2nd grade. I remember going to the library and reading anything I could get my hands on about Abraham Lincoln. Last year I was lucky enough to see Hamilton: The Musical in Tampa. I can't wait until it comes to the theaters. This love of history has carried over into adulthood and I love sharing my passion of history with students.
""Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed, is more important than any other one thing." ~ Abraham Lincoln
