I was raised in Pensacola, FL and I graduated from Tate High School in 1997. I attended Florida State University, and graduated in 2001, with a degree in Early Childhood Education. After graduating I came back to Pensacola and began my teaching career at Sid Nelson Pre-Kindergarten Learning Center in 2001. I taught Pre-K there for nine years. When Sid Nelson closed in 2010, I moved to Molino Park Elementary. I love working with the youngest kids in the district and getting them excited and ready to succeed in kindergarten. I live with my husband, Brian and our two children Riley and Elijah and our dogs Oscar and Max.
