About me
I have been an educator for the past twenty-four years, nineteen of which were with the Dade County Public Schools.  I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Music from the University of Miami and a Master's Degree in Education from Florida International University.  I began as an ESE teacher and later made the switch to Social Studies.  For the past ten years I have focused on Advanced Placement courses, teaching AP World and European History.  As a College Board Reader, I am able to bring this training into the classroom, and my focus will continue to be on improving students' writing and reading skills. 

I like the beach, love hiking in the mountains, but family dinners and reunions remain my favorite.

I look forward to our journey together as we spend the next nine months traveling through 10,000 years of human history!
