Watching my young daughter as she discovered the world around her inspired me to return to school and complete my degree in education at Florida Atlantic University.
Over the last nine years, I have been privileged to teach students in third through sixth grades. I have always looked for ways to engage my students in the content of whatever grade I was assigned. What began as a love for teaching and generating excitement for my students in the science curriculum has grown into a passion for integrating the curriculum to develop authentic lessons that both produce high engagement and high learning achievement.
Currently, I am the Science Lead at my Elementary school. As the Science Lead, I promote STEAM lessons and activities by facilitating professional development for our teachers and providing support as needed.
