I started teaching in 2003, working with preschool and later teaching elementary to high school students as a substitute teacher. I have taught Youth Group Bible Study at Lutz Baptist to 4th and 5th grade students. My experience eventually led me to a teaching position at Hope Ranch Learning Academy in 2019. I am enrolled at Walden University, pursuing my Master of Science in Special Education.

Teaching Philosophy:

I believe that each child is an individual that bears the image of their creator, God. As an educator, my goal is to value and develop each child's strengths, interests, skills, abilities, and knowledge to extend their learning into the person God created them to be. Education is a blessing and should be enjoyed by the teacher and the student.
