Summary

I would love to obtain a teaching job in a K-3 classroom in Marion County.  I have been teaching Kindergarten, First, or Second Grade for 17 years in Seminole County Public Schools.  My family is transferring to Ocala to be closer to my in-laws who are elderly.  I am currently teaching a Gifted Cluster First Grade Class.  My passion and gift is teaching.  I never grow weary of learning new things and feel strongly this is what has fueled not only my success but the success of every student I have taught.
