.: About Me
I am originally from Englewood, Florida; I consider myself a Florida native and love the beach and sunshine. I attended the University of Florida in Gainesville, where I received both my undergraduate and graduate degrees. I received a B.A in History in May of 2004 and an M.Ed in Secondary Social Studies education in August 2005.
I currently live in Candler Park and enjoy running and I take every chance I get to be outdoors. I love the study of Anthropology, the study of various cultures. I find different cultures and people fascinating and enjoy learning as much as I can and in turn educating students regarding such topics.

The history strand focuses on historical developments essential to understanding a specific region in the modern world. The geography strand relates the importance of geography to each region’s development. The civics strand examines the political structures in each region. The economics strand continues to build basic economic concepts and introduces students tot eh economic development of each region.
In eighth grade, students study Georgia geography, history, government, and economics. While the four strands are interwoven, ample opportunity is also provided for in-depth study of the geography of Georgia and the government of Georgia. U.S. historical events are included, as appropriate, to ensure students understand Georgia’s role in the history of the United States.
