Biography

I began my part-time adjunct work at UNF in the Summer of 2001. At that time I was a teacher at Susie E. Tolbert Elementary School in Jacksonville, FL. I was a full-time employee of the Duval County district for 13 years (12 years as a teacher at Susie E. Tolbert, 1 year as a 6th grade House Administrator at Mandarin Middle School).

 

From the Fall of 2006 to the Spring of 2009 I was employed full-time at UNF as a Visiting Line instructor in the Department of Foundations and Secondary Education. During that time I taught The Learning Process, Classroom Management, Assessment and Introduction to Education. I also supervised UNF Interns for the Department of Childhood Education during my three years at UNF.

 

Currently, I work full-time for the University of Florida's Lastinger Center for Learning. This position entails working with a team of highly motivated, talented individuals in the capacity of providing high quality, research-based professional development to teachers in Duval's highest needs schools. This year we are working closely with teachers, students and administrators at Andrew Jackson High School. We also provide professional development in the area of Teacher Inquiry and Coaching to district schools. In addition, I am a part-time doctoral student at the University of Florida. My studies include looking more closely at the issues of student leadership and professional development of teachers.
