Degrees and Certifications:
BA Arts-Criminology; Middle School Science, High School Environmental Science, LBS-1
I recently relocated to the Illinois Valley from Tampa Bay, Florida. I graduated from The University of South Florida with a Bachelor's Degree in Criminology. I began my career in adult probation, however, life took a turn, and I found myself substitute teaching at our local middle school. Eventually I became a full time Special Education Teacher. As I was dually certified in science, I transitioned to teach at the high school I graduated from (Go Cobras!) where I taught such courses as AP Environmental Science and Marine Biology. I am excited to be working within the special education aspect of high school, because I feel that with my diverse teaching background and life experience, I can truly make an impact and be a mentor for my students. In addition, I admire the culture and school spirit here at LP, and am excited to be a Cavalier!
