Hello! I am so happy to be teaching your amazing students at Apalachee Elementary! I was born and raised in Tallahassee and I earned my Associates degree from Tallahassee Community College. I worked for the state for 7 years while starting a family and later decided to go back to school to earn my Bachelor’s degree in Exceptional Student Education from Flagler College in Tallahassee, Florida. I have 4 children (2, 5, 12, & 14) and a farm full of rescued animals! I enjoy the uniqueness in working with ESE students and the joy that they bring to the classroom each and every day. I love these students with my whole heart and will always be an advocate for them.
We have also been blessed to have three paraprofessionals working with and teaching your children in the classroom this school year. They are well versed in working with students with disabilities and two of them have children of their own who are autistic. In our classroom we are more like a family and we strive to make sure the students know how much they are loved and cared for.
