    My Education & Teaching Background

    I received my BA at Lipscomb University in Nashville, Tennessee and my MS in Logistics Management from the Air Force Institute of Technology.  I have been teaching in Florida for 15 years now.

     Course information

    AVID classes will be following the Weeks- at-a-glance and the AVID curriculum laid out on AVID.org.  English classes will follow the Lake County Scope and Sequence avaialble on the LCS website. Each student has a copy of the course syllabus providing details of expectations for the year.
