About Me:

Born and raised in New Jersey, I moved with my family to Fort Myers in the summer of 2006, and graduated from Bishop Verot High School in 2008. I pursued a college education at FGCU, graduating with a Bachelor's Degree in English by 2012. I worked throughout high school, starting at a family owned coffee shop, and eventually moving on to retail management by the time I got to college. I returned to FGCU to complete my Teaching Practicum while teaching my first year - EVER - at Oak Hammock Middle School in 2014, and haven't left since! I have had the privilege of teaching all middle grade levels, and truly getting my professional wits about me as I enter my 7th year of teaching! This is my second year as Department Head for Language Arts, and I am truly excited for my team to make the best year for your students, yet! The camaraderie amongst the staff and students is what keeps me at the Oak, and probably will for a good, long while <3 #oakstrong
