Degrees and Certifications:
I was born and raised in Needham, Massachusetts, but I have lived in Florida since 1980. I earned my Master’s Degree and attended both USF and Florida State. My career began with teaching special education for 11 years. After that I spent 6 years teaching fifth grade. This will be my sixth year with my Perkins second graders! I have been teaching at Perkins since 2009. Before that I taught special education at St. Pete Challenge and Clearview Avenue Elementary.
My husband's name is Mike and I have one grown son, Clayton. My hobbies include playing guitar, boating, making crafts, and playing games with my family and friends. Let me not forget to mention that I have two adorable cats – Gidget and Bridget!
I truly love teaching at Perkins and I am grateful to be here!
