Subjects Taught
First Grade


I am a 2009 graduate from the University of West Florida. I hold a B.A. in Elementary Education and I am licensed to teach grades K-6.


Professional Mission Statement:

As a first grade teacher I am dedicated, caring, approachable, and enthusiastic. My mission is to inspire and create lifelong learners! I will provide rich opportunities and experiences in and outside of the classroom. My goal is for all students to achieve academic excellence and develop leadership skills that will enable them to become excellent leaders. We will learn and grow together. In my perfect world, all children would be able to attend top notch schools. All of the materials needed to be successful would be available regardless of their status in life. There would be unlimited funds and resources to help students achieve greatness.


Growing leaders by inspiring one student at a time!
