Tell us about your family.
I have been married to my high school sweetheart, Paul, for over 25 years. We have two children -- Liam, a student at UCF, and Reilly, a student at Stetson University. Both Liam and Reilly attended SRCS from K3-12th grade.
Why did you become a teacher?
When I was in high school, I tutored elementary students as an after-school job. I would also walk from my high school to the neighboring elementary school to work with Kindergarten students as an elective. I realized I had a knack for helping children understand concepts, and I also liked it.
What are your interests outside of work?
I love to cook and bake, especially when my kids come home to visit. I have been leading a local women's book club for five years now, and Paul and I love to travel.
What do you love about SRCS?
I love the skilled, talented, and passionate people with whom I work. What a blessing to love coming to work daily with people of one mind and one accord on a mission to love children and give them an amazing academic experience.
What do you most enjoy about your job?
After teaching at SRCS for 15 years, I now have the opportunity to promote the best teachers and best programs Citrus County has to offer.
