I am originally from Miami, Florida and went to Florida State University (Go Noles!).  I graduated in 2006 with a B.A. in English Literature and then again in 2007 with an M.S. in Sports Management.  Yearning for a “dry heat,” I made the move to Arizona in 2008 and began my teaching career in the Sahuarita school district.  I have taught 6th, 7th, and 8th grade Reading/English, as well as E.L.D. (English Language Development).  In addition to words, I have a love for art, the beach, ice cream, and sports.  

I am truly honored to be your student's Reading/English teacher and am certain that we will have a fun and fantastic year.  Our classroom will be full of hard work, creativity, positivity, and laughs!
