I am a native to the state of Florida, and have spent the past 9 years teaching in both Broward County and Palm Beach County public schools. My experience has allowed me to educate both primary students and intermediate students in all subject areas. Currently I am a third grade gifted ELA educator within the Palm Beach County School district. My passion is creating an environment where children not only have the necessary skills to be successful readers and writers, but most importantly develop a lifelong love of literature. I believe it is an educators’ goal to instill within all our students a love of learning, a passion for knowledge, and a sense of wonder about the world around them. It is my hope as an educator to inspire my students to dream big and work hard to transform those dreams of today into successes of tomorrow.
