Hello Cougars! I am so excited for a great year!  This is my 31st year teaching, and my 15th year at LHMS.  

Before teaching at Lakeland Highlands Middle School, I taught gifted K-5 and have been an elementary classroom teacher in grades 3, 4 and 5.  Prior to that, I was a Satellite Communications Specialist in the United States Air Force, traveling to Germany, Italy, France, Turkey, and many parts of the United States. Before I had the honor of serving this country,  I earned my Bachelor's degree in Education from the University of Northern Iowa and later earned my Master's Degree in Education from Saint Leo University. I love to in-line skate, jog to Dave Ramsey talk radio, kayak, and go on all sorts of adventure vacations with my family.
