A little bit about me...

I serve as an educator partly because I come from a long line of educators, through my mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. I have worked in this rewarding field of education since 1978. I graduated from Greensboro College, NC with a degree in Special Education, and spent 13 years in the classroom, teaching students with disabilities at all grade levels. Twelve of those years were in the state of North Carolina, and then I moved back “Home” to Venice FL, and taught one more year. I then moved into a Behavior Specialist position for 5 years, and finally to the ESE Liaison position, where I currently serve the needs of students, teachers, parents, and administration at Venice Middle School. Here in Florida I have earned 2 Master’s Degrees from USF, one in Special Education (Varying Exceptionalities) and one in Educational Leadership. All of my years working in Florida have been at Venice Middle School. I love the field of education, and I love working at the great Venice Middle School. I am married, and have 3 adult children and 2 grandchildren. I graduated from Venice High School as did 2 of my children. Four of my 5 siblings also graduated from VHS. This is what I meant about coming “Home.” Venice has my heart, and I am proud to be working to serve the Venice community in my career as an educator. 

Please feel free to contact me at any time about any concern. I am here to serve, and to meet your needs. Email works best as far as quick contact.
