I have been married to my husband Ray for 16 years. We have three children.....Derek is 15, Amber is 12, and Emily is 5! Our four legged child is Rocky. He is a 10 year old Black Lab who thinks he is human! We also have 11 chickens who supply us with delicious eggs and demand to be played with on a daily basis....crazy girlz!
I was born and raised in Keystone Heights and graduated from Keystone Heights High School in 1995. I have a Masters Degree from the University of North Florida in Elementary Education. I am currently in my 18th year of teaching. Over the years, I have taught 4th grade and Kindergarten. For the last two years, I have been an ESE inclusion teacher where I work with Kindergarten and Second Grade students. Being able to teach at Keystone Heights Elementary School is amazing!
I am a member of Trinity Baptist Church. I have been teaching the First and Second Grade Girls Sunday School class for 6 years. I am also involved in the Wednesday night Awana club at Trinity. During the last 8 summers, I have had the wonderful opportunity to be able to be the director of Vacation Bible School. We serve between 400 and 500 children during the week of VBS, and it is such a blessing.
One of my most favorite things I do with my family is camping. We try to make plans to go camping at least once a month. It is a great time for family bonding and to get away from the hustle and bustle of life. While camping, we enjoyed bike rides, hikes, and sitting around the campfire.
I started working out at Genesis Fitness center in December 2016. I mainly started
