Back Overview Resources About Me


After graduating from the University of Central Florida with a B.S. in Exceptional Child Education and receiving my Gifted Certification from Nova University in 1991, I created and taught the gifted program at Fairglen Elementary School from 1991 to 2004. There, in addition to teaching the Gifted program, I sponsored and coached Odyssey of the Mind, taught TV Production, and served as the school’s Writing Specialist. In 2004 I came to Kennedy Middle School to work with advanced and gifted students teaching world cultures. There I served as Social Studies Department Chair, Gifted Student Program Coordinator, and co founded the KEEP, Kennedy's program for Gifted and Talented students. In addition,  I took over the school's webpage and became the webmaster. I served as a writing coach, sponsored and coached OM. This is my ninth year at Viera and I am privileged to  teach a rigorous and demanding curriculum in the subjects I love the most.
 
    I am interested in history, government and politics. I love technology and record original electronic music. Click to One Bad Ant  to hear my music video go to youtube and look up one bad ant!!

     My goal is to make my class one that our students will look back later in life and say that class was important!!!
