Aafter teaching at Dorsett Shoals for nine years as an interrelated teacher, I moved into a new position three years ago. This is my third year as an itinerant teacher for students with orthopedic impairments. I absolutely love my students and feel that it is an honor to have the opportunity to work with the same students year after year. I am privileged to follow these young men and women as they progress through the Douglas County School System and accomplish their goals for their futures.

I currently travel between ten different schools in the county, but I am based at my home- Dorsett Shoals. This is where my "family" is and I consider myself so lucky to get to be here. My hope that this I will continue to be based at Dorsett in the years to come.



As you can see, I am a true Gator fan! My husband and I met while at the University of Florida and have now been married for seventeen years. We have three wonderful children with my oldest being 13, then an 11 year-old, followed by a 7 year old. We have two cats and a tortoise whom we love and adore.

I love living in Douglas County and am so glad that we made the decision to move here eleven years ago. The opportunity to experience all four seasons without having to shovel is THE BEST!
