I am excited to be a part of the LRHS community for a second year. This is my 14th year teaching reading. I received my Bachelor's Degree in Psychology and my Master's Degree in K-12 Educational Leadership from Saint Leo University. I am also certified in Reading K – 12. I want my students to feel welcome and involved in our classroom. I encourage problem solving, collaboration, creativity, and responsibility. I want my students to feel empowered by their education and find the things they learn will always be useful to them in the years to come. I want them to know that it is ok to make a mistake. Things that challenge us tend to make us grow stronger with time. I look forward to the upcoming year!
