About Me


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.
