    Dear Sawgrass Bay Families,

    I am excited to begin my second year as an administrator at Sawgrass Bay!  This promises to be a great school year.  I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education from the University of Michigan and a Master of Arts in Education in Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment.  In addition, I have earned my Educational Leadership Certification from Stetson University.  Additionally, I have eight years of experience as a classroom teacher and have had the opportunity to be a part of many aspects of school leadership as the Acceleration Resource Teacher, the Personalized Learning Coach and the Instructional Dean at Sawgrass Bay Elementary.  I am an enthusiastic educator who strives to contribute to the positive student learning experience. 

     

    I hold enthusiasm, passion, and dedication to education and an uncompromising view that all students can learn, given a positive learning atmosphere that welcomes exploration and enhances student confidence.  It is my belief that an educator’s mission is to make school enjoyable and exciting.  If students look forward to attending school, they will want to learn.  I believe that is what school is all about.

     

    I believe Lake County is a wonderful place to live and work and am so very excited about this upcoming school year.  Our teachers are some of the most dedicated and hardworking people I have ever come across.  Your child is in the best hands and will truly have a personalized education, where we will continue to "Build Leaders for Life, One Student at a Time."
     
    Your Partner in Education,
