My career as an educator began in Lee County in 1996. My first teaching job was at Diplomat Elementary in Cape Coral. During my time at Diplomat, I was a Life Skills teacher for ESE students. After a few years at Diplomat Elementary, I transferred to J. Colin English Elementary in N. Ft. Myers. There I spent one year as a 3rd and 4th grade ESE Inclusion teacher. After only one year at J. Colin English, I transferred to Colonial Elementary where I became the Behavior Specialist. During my time as a Behavior Specialist, I was given many leadership opportunities that fueled my desire to become an administrator. So, I decided to return to school and pursue my masters in Educational Leadership. After 9 years as a Behavior Specialist, I returned to the classroom as a regular education teacher in second grade at Colonial Elementary. In October of that same school year, I applied to become the Assistant Principal at Harns Marsh Elementary. I was appointed as the Assistant Principal at Harns Marsh Elementary that following January, and have loved every minute of it. Every day is a new day, and I look forward to coming to work to serve the students, staff and parents of HME. Together we will do great things!
