Hello! I am very excited to begin my second year at Legacy Academy. For the past decade, I have taught high school and middle school language arts in Orlando, Florida, and Colorado.
I graduated from Appalachian State University in Boone, NC, with a Bachelor's Degree in Communications/ Minor in English Literature. I hold a Professional Teaching License in both Florida and Colorado as an Elementary Ed K-6, Language Arts 7-12 teacher. Some of my previous honors include the Kiwanis Club of Orlando’s Teacher of the Month award, and having one of my Creative Writing 2 students earn a Scholastic Art and Writing National Gold Medal for his short story.
I believe each child is a unique and wonderful creation. However, they will succeed only if they are provided a safe, structured, caring environment in which to explore and learn at their own pace. Students need the flexibility to practice concepts they need to reinforce, and the freedom to research, read, and write about new ideas that intrigue them.
Thank you for entrusting me with your child's education. This is going to be a fantastic year!
