Hello My Name Is...

Miss Gardiner


Reading and Peer Collaborative Teacher

About Me:

I am one of the Peer Collaborative Teachers at Oak Hammock.  I teach Reading on some periods, and then I am able to support teachers in their classrooms on the remaining periods.  This is my second year at Oak Hammock Middle and the beginning of my eleventh year teaching in the School District of Lee County.  Originally from Maryland, I followed family to Florida after obtaining my Bachelor's degree in Social Science/History and my Master's of Arts in Teaching Secondary Education degree from Frostburg State University.  I currently hold endorsements in Social Science 6-12, Gifted, and Reading.  During my teaching career, I have also been a team leader, department head, academic coach, professional development facilitator, and the Book Club/Book Battle sponsor.  I am very passionate about history and reading.  I love to see my students discover and explore to gain an understanding and appreciation of past/current events.  Outside of school, I am an avid reader/writer, and I enjoy spending time with my family and friends (my sister is a teacher at OHMS too!).  Please feel free to contact me with any questions/concerns, and I look forward to working with you this year!
