I am certified to teach Early Childhood, Elementary, Middle Grades Science, Secondary English, Reading, and English to Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL).


I have been teaching in Carroll County Schools since July 2000.  I taught in DeSoto County, Florida for five years.  I have taught every grade from prekindergarten to twelvth grade. 


I am from Lakeland, Florida, but I have strong ties to Georgia since both of my parents were born here.  My three sons and I have made Carroll County our home since 2000.  We enjoy the scenery and change of seasons we have here. 

I am very blessed to be an English to Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) teacher here in Carroll County Schools.  It is a challenge and a privilege to help my students prepare for success in the global marketplace by helping them acquire English.
