    Welcome to 8th grade, Wildcats! I am so excited to share a brand new school year with you. It is going to be EPIC, so get ready for a great year. We are going to dive deep into into the world of the Socs and the Greasers, meander through the halls of Hogwarts, and our journey will end with the a tiny nimble footed thief on the streets of Warsaw, Poland in 1945. We are going to learn about grit. We are going to be become authors, readers, and thinkers. I can’t wait to have a great year with you.

     My goal is for each of you to grow as a student. I will help you in anyway I can. If you need help, ask me! I love helping my students. I have a philosophy. It is ok to be “stuck.” It is not ok to stay there. Together we will develop a plan to get you “unstuck.” I am so excited for a new school year; the possibilities are endless.  

    This is my 4th year teaching 8th grade at McKeel. I have been teaching middle school for 9 years. I love it. Before teaching, I served in the  United States Marine Corps. My husband and I served together for 4 years. I graduated from the University of Phoenix. I am certified to teach English Grades 5-9, Reading K-12, ESOL K-12, and Elementary Education K-6. My husband and I have 3 sons ~Alex, Jaxson, and Harrison. All 3 of our sons are Wildcats. Alex graduated in 2018. He is currently a goal keeper at Florida Southern #GoMocs. Jaxson is a junior; Harrison in 6th grade. We live in Plant City with our 3 dogs. On the weekends, we can usually be found at the soccer field. I love Harry Potter and Stranger Things. I enjoy reading a great book.
