Tell us about your family.
I am a mom of two boys, Daniel and Noah, who attend SRCS. My husband works as a Store Manager at City Electric Supply in Brooksville.
Why did you become a teacher?
I decided at age 14 that I was going to be a teacher. I fell in love with kids while working at a camp for children on the autism spectrum as a teenager. I continued to work with children on the autism spectrum and children with varying exceptionalities from 1984-2013. God opened the door for me to teach Kindergarten here at SRCS back in 2013, and I have fallen in love with everything SRCS stands for. I am very blessed to work here and doubly blessed to have my own children here at the school with me.
What do you most enjoy about your job?
The thing I love best about my job is that I get to pour the love of God into the students each day, all while teaching academic subjects. I wouldn't trade my job for the world! I get to love on kids, and my own children are loved on and mentored by amazing women and men of God.
