Wow! It's hard to believe that I have started my 19th year teaching here at Lakeshore. When I was a kid, my two favorite classes were always Science and P.E. and I loved playing sports, which steered me toward a degree in teaching. I am a 1991 graduate of Lakeshore, and am excited to teach at Hollywood because that is where I spent my elementary years, so Hollywood has a special place in my heart. I am married and have one daughter who is a 7th grader at Lakeshore Middle School. You may also see me a lot at the high school, I am the Assistant Varsity Volleyball Coach. I also like to volunteer for Animal Aid.
