I started teaching at University of North Florida in 2014. I currently teach Field Experience I (EDF3945) and II (EDF3946). Previously I taught “Formal Tests and Measures for Students with Disabilities, K-12” at Towson University in Baltimore, where I also took graduate courses in Educational Leadership.
I have taught and provided district level leadership and supervision, grades K-12 in Baltimore, Maryland, Lancaster, Pennsylvania, and most recently in Clay County, Florida. In my current role, I serve as a liaison between Clay County and University of North Florida, providing staff development and mentoring for pre-interns, interns and new teachers.
I have two children, ages 13 and 16, so there are few soccer or football fields in Jacksonville that I haven’t seen. In my "spare time" I enjoy traveling, exercising, cooking and cheering for my hometown team, the Baltimore Orioles.
