    I graduated from Florida Southern College in 1983 with a B.A. degree in elementary education. My first teaching job was at Clermont Junior High teaching seventh grade Language Arts. As the school grew and relocated, I have moved with it to its present location at Windy Hill Middle School.
     
    I hold a Florida teaching certificate in the following areas: elementary education (grades 1-6), middle school science, and language arts (grades 5-9), and gifted endorsed.
     
    I was raised in South Lake County, and have seen many changes to the area.  I live in the area with my husband David, daughter Amanda, and my many animals. My family enjoys watching and attending NASCAR races, AFL football games, and NFL football games.
