My oldest son has attended Lake Fern Montessori Academy for the past two years and my daughter is starting preschool this year. I decided to make the move out of the public school system to teach in an environment in which children will always come first and they are taught in the ways they learn best!

I’ve been working in the education field for more than 20 years. While pursuing my elementary education degree from Rollins College, I worked as an instructional assistant teaching Spanish and in pre-kindergarten classrooms. I began my full-time teaching career in 2003 as a kindergarten teacher. I’ve taught all grade levels from kindergarten through 12th grade, including exceptional education and in alternative education environments. I returned to school at Full Sail University in 2010 to pursue and receive my Master’s Degree in Education Media Design and Technology.

I have also had a couple amazing and unique opportunities to travel to both China and Spain to enhance my educational background. In Shanghai, China, I taught English in a Montessori kindergarten for a short time. In Spain, I attended the University of Salamanca where I received 60 credit hours of full immersion in the Spanish language and culture.
