A little about me….. I grew up stomping barefoot through the Florida swamps, jumping over quicksand patches, running from boar during the day and catching alligators at night…lol. There were nine kids in our family, without counting the ones who came to spend the night and never left! Continuing that tradition, I have seven children and another one who calls me “Mom”…lol. They range from 21 years old to 41 years old. They have given us eight incredible grandkids, of whom we are very proud! My husband is a retired Sarasota County firefighter/paramedic. My heart’s desire was to have a degree in Psychopharmacology, but instead I followed in my mother’s footsteps and became a teacher. She piloted the ESE programs in the state of Florida and retired at the young age of 80! Teaching has become my passion. I have a degree in elementary education and hold certificates in middle school integrated curriculum (core subjects), ESE K-12, SLD, SED, ESOL, and Reading. I am currently considering a post graduate program for a degree in Autism, in order to teach at the collegiate level. Down time is still spent on the water and in the swamps, if I can help it...lolol.
