Pinellas County Schools, Florida

After working for Florida Public Schools as an Attendance Specialist since 1998, I acquired my teaching degree thanks to a scholarship from my school district. My degree included a variety of certifications and endorsements in areas such as Exceptional Education, ESL, Business Ed and Reading. I then went on to obtain my Master's degree in Cultural Psychology before I moved to Panama to teach in International Schools as in 2012.
