Welcome ladies and gentlemen! First off, I want to express my gratification and excitement for this upcoming school year and the remarkable group of young adults that I will have the opportunity to work with. In order to start the year off right I would like to share a few details about myself to initiate the tremendous relationships that will soon form. I was born and raised in Gainesville, Florida; and yes that unfortunately means I was a Gator Fan for most of my life. However, I now see the light and truly understand which University within Florida is truly the best. I had the experience of attending FSU and graduated in the Spring of 2016. Five years ago, I was an intern for Ms. Krause in Third Grade and had the pleasure of witnessing the amazing learning environment that is Florida State University Schools. This past four years I have been teaching 5th grade Language Arts and Social Studies at FSUS. I am looking forward to a spectacular school year!
