I am a native of Reading, Pennsylvania and moved to Jacksonville, Florida with my family in 1996.  My husband of 26 years, Jim, is a Retired Commander, United States Navy.  I am extremely proud of his Naval career and all his accomplishments.  We have three wonderful daughters; Margaret is a graduate of University of North Florida and is employed by UNF as their Program Coordinator, Ashley will be a Senior at the University of North Florida, and our youngest, Elizabeth, will be a Sophomore at the University of North Florida.

In the summer I enjoy teaching swimming lessons to the neighborhood children.  I also enjoy running and attending my daughters events.  I am currently training to run the Walt Disney World Coast to Coast Challenge with my sister on January 2015.

This coming school year I hope to instill my passion for Science as well as my love for literature into the minds of all of my students.
