    At Lafayette Elementary, I enjoy learning something new from the kids everyday. Their thirst for knowledge is contagious and watching them "glow" when they realize they have "done it" is why I teach!

    I have a degree in Education and BS Political Science with a minor in Sociology

    I started teaching since 1992.  I started my career in Miami, Florida teaching 3rd grade. I've been teaching at Lafayette Elementary since 1994 and I have previously taught 2nd, a 2nd/3rd multi-age, 3rd, 4th and 5th grades at LES.​I also enjoy the partnerships that are formed with staff, parents and families...their support is truly amazing.  Thank you to the Lafayette community, staff, and kids...I love teaching at Lafayette Elementary!

    I truly enjoy spending time with my family, camping, and attending my son’s swim meets!  I love anything outdoors, but have a special love for the ocean and kayak camping.  I also enjoy traveling with my family, collecting National Park Junior Ranger Badges for our son, hiking, reading and gardening.
