    Deerlake is AWESOME!!!

    This year is my 13th year teaching. I did 10-years in elementary, teaching at Kate Sullivan Elementary teaching third, fourth, and fifth grade. I have been at Deerlake Middle School for 2-years and have taught sixth and seventh garde science.



    I am a Nole!


    I earned my Bachelors and Masters of Science degrees from Florida State University. 



    I have two awesome dogs!

    When I am not at school, I am most likely hanging with my boys! I have a 14-year old Golden Lab named Icheb (from Star Trek Voyager) and a 4-year old Bassador (Basset Hound/Labrador Mix) named Enzo (from The Art of Racing in the Rain).




    I am a Massive Marvel Fan!!!

    In the off chance you did not notice, I am a massive Comic Book fan. I love both DC Comics and Marvel comics. My favorite heroes/heroic teams include The Guardians of the Galaxy, Captain America, Ant Man, Fantastic Four, and X-Men.



    I am House Slytherin!

    There is no doubt in my mind, I am House Slytherin... the best house in Hogwarts School of Wizardry. During the summer breaks, love re-reading all the Harry Potter books, going to The Wizarding World at Universal Studios, and I have even been to the Warner Brothers Studios in London where they filmed the movies. #ProfessorSnapeIsMyHero



    I use to study WHALES!!!

    Marine Biology is may favorite field of science, and in highschool actually I worked at the New England Aquarium studying whale behaviors. We observed the whale's behavior and identify them by the unique patterns located on their flukes (tails).



    I LOVE to Run...

    I am an avid runner. I run almost everyday, and am co-sponsor of Deerlake's Running Club that runs every Monday and Wednesday afterschool (Let me know if you want to joing the club.) I usually run a few half marathons each year (that's 13.1-miles) and have run  few full marathons (thats 26.2-miles)from time to time.



    I was terrified of snakes!

    Our class room is home to two amazing snakes, Reggie and Archie (named after Archie comics or Riverdale). Believe it or not, when I first agreed to foster the snakes, I was terrified by them. I got over my fear, and now have two amazing animals that really have cool personalities.
