I'm a Lakeland native and am happy to be teaching in this great community in which I grew up! I earned my bachelor's degree from Southeastern University in 2006 and began teaching in 2007. I taught third grade for 8 years and started a new adventure teaching 5th grade a few years ago. I absolutely love teaching 5th! I feel truly blessed to be teaching at such an amazing school! In my class we are like family and I believe growing character is just as important as growing academically.
