Please feel free to email me at any time at the Contact link above. Since I do not have access to a school phone in my classroom, and have no way of knowing if I have messages until I check them in the morning, email is the easiest and fastest way to reach me. It also allows me to reach out to you at a time and place where I have everything that I need to answer your questions, such as access to their schoolwork, their grades and textbooks which would allow me to send you copies of anything that you require.
Please join remind to get texts of upcoming assignments.
I attended elementary school in Miami, Florida. I attended middle and high school in Boca Raton, Florida. I then returned south and attended the University of Miami (go Canes!) in Coral Gables, FL. I graduated there Cum Laude with a Bachelors of Science in Mathematics and a Minor in Education. I have had numerous trainings over the past 20+ years in all types of teaching methods and strategies.
Starting in August of 1993, I taught in Miami for 3 years, and then moved north to Putnam county and taught at Palatka High School and QI Roberts Jr/Sr High for a total of 17 years. I went south again, (but not as far) and taught for just over a year at Bartow High School. I finally left the state in 2017 and taught for a year at Middletown Middle School in Middletown, Ohio. Finally, we relocated here to Mississippi, and I have been teaching at Olive Branch High School.
My parents relocated me to Florida when I was just 2. I have spent nearly all of my life there. I finally left the state in 2017 and moved to
