The 2010-2011 school year will be my 13th year teaching.  I spent most of my teaching career in Hillsborough County.  Then, I decided to work in the private sector (at an advertising agency as a content writer).  While I enjoyed my time creating slogans and print media, I missed the classroom.  I decided to move my family from Hillsborough to Polk and go back to teaching.  This is my 3rd year at GJHS.  I have a B.A. in English Education from the University of South Florida and am working toward my M.A. in Gifted Education.  I have been married for 10 years and am the proud mom of  2 beautiful children.
