Welcome to my classroom webpage!!

Hello all!! This year will be my second year teaching, both of which have been at Ben Gamla Kendall. I have a Bachelors Degree in Education with a Math minor and Reading & ESOL Endorsement which I received at Barry University. I also just recently completed and received my Masters of Education Degree this past December from Barry University. I am currently teaching 2nd-5th Grade Gifted Science, 6th-8th Grade Science and Pre-Algebra. I am so thankful for the opportunity to be your child’s teacher this year and please know that your child, their education and well-being are very important to me and will always be my priority. I look forward to an amazing, fun and successful school year!!
