Welcome to Pine View! I’ve put together some important tips to help you navigate your journey while at school. As always, you can email me with any questions and/or concerns.
Let me first begin by telling you a bit about myself. Before coming to Pine View I taught first grade for three years at Laurel Nokomis School. Then I moved to Pine View as a third grade teacher for three years, on to second grade for a year and then back to third grade. This is my seventeenth year at Pine View. I have my Doctorate degree in Educational Leadership, and I hope to someday write curriculum for gifted students. Students work hard at Pine View and I work hard to keep them challenged.
Before becoming a teacher I was a legal secretary for seven years. I enjoyed the work, but I was starting a family and wanted a job that allowed me to have a life with my children. My older daughter is 35, married and has a 8 year old little girl named Kaia. My younger daughter graduated Venice High School. She then, after a little sole searching, went on to earn a cosmetology degree and is now working at Spa Hollywood as a make up artist. She is now 25, working and using her degree. I am very proud of both of my daughters, and miss them now that they are out of the house. I look forward to all of my sweet children in my classroom to fill any void I might feel as my children continue on with their adult lives.
