Welcome to my online classroom.This year marks my 9th year teaching. This is my thrid year here at RSMS. Prior to moving to Kentucky I was a teacher for six years in Wesley Chapel, Florida where I taught high school social studies. I love teaching and all the challenges that it provides daily and I am so excited to work at the middle school level and see the world through their eyes and minds.
I am a Florida girl, born in Tampa and raised in a city just east of Tampa called Brandon. I graduated from Florida State University with my bachelor's degree in Psychology and then began a graduate program in Psychology. During the program I realized that what I really wanted to do was teach, and I completed my Master's degree in Teaching Social Science Education at the University of South Florida.
I am asked a lot of what brought me to Kentucky especially after living in Florida my whole life. My husband is working on his PhD in History at the University of Kentucky. We have been married for 3 years and we have a daughter named Abigail who was born on May 8, 2012.
I am a HUGE Disney fan. Although I enjoy living in Kentucky I do miss going to Walt Disney World as often as I use to. I also enjoy running, watching college football, going to zoos, traveling (especially to historical places), and spending time with my friends and family.
