I am very excited to be joining the staff at Bellows Falls Middle School. My family and I moved to Brattleboro from Gainesville, Florida just 3 years ago. My husband works at a local college and my son, Sebastian is a student in the 3rd grade. Previously, I taught high school History and Reading, at Gainesville High School, for 10 years. I had had students of all ages and diverse academic abilities, I taught English Language Learners (ELL), Advance Placement classes and everyone in between. I graduated from the University of Florida with a BA in History and a minor in Education. I am currently hold a Vermont Certificate in History and Reading/LA Specialist. While at GHS, I mentored 12 graduate students through the University of Florida ProTeach, helping them complete their semester teaching practicum.

I love teaching, I use every means available to me to try to make class engaging and exciting. We create presentations, watch interesting and new videos, keep portfolios, learn new vocabulary and key concepts, learn to write about history, but most importantly I try to get my students to learn and understand their learning, helping them to be more successful in all their classes.

Thank you for the opportunity to teach your student, I can be reached almost anytime at
