Hello My Name Is...

I am a National Board Certified ESOL teacher with experience teaching elementary, middle, and high school students.  I also taught at the community college level, teaching Listening and Speaking courses to adults in Tampa, Florida.  I love teaching ESOL because I love the heart and hard-working attitude of my students.  I appreciate how much effort they put forth in order to learn a new language in a new country while maintaining their native language and heritage.  At May River I serve ESOL students in my own classroom, and I sometimes assist them in their English and/or History classes.

Personally, I am married and have a grown son.  I love the creative process.  I enjoy decorating, landscape design, writing, cooking, and renovation projects.  On the weekends I am usually involved in some type of home remodeling or gardening project.  My family loves to travel, so we are always planning an exciting trip!
