Social Studies Team

I attended Saint Leo University where I earned my Bachelors degree in Elementary Education.  I earned my Masters degree in Reading K-12 from USF.   I am certified to teach Elementary Education K-6, Reading K-12 as well as Social Sciences 5-9.  Last year I had the opportunity to transition from SMA to MAT and spend all day teaching what I love, American History.  I can't believe it took me this long to figure out what a treasure middle school teaching is.   This year I will be teaching 8th Grade American History.  I also serve as an adjunct professor in the education department of Florida Souther College where I enjoy sharing ideas for integrating reading in the middle school content area.  This will be my eighteenth year in the classroom and tenth year at SMA, I have worked in both Hillsborough and Polk public schools.  My husband Michael and I have two daughters, Mallory(16) and Madison(12).  My interests include traveling, reading, hiking, spending time with family and friends, and enjoying any time I can get at the beach.
