I am a lifelong student who loves learning, and who loves to teach even more. My path through college included pre-veterinary studies, a brief encounter with engineering which took me through calculus 2, then on to liberal arts with a focus in psychology and Spanish for my B.S. in Liberal Arts from UF. My next turn took me into the dental hygiene program, earning an A.S. degree. I later entered graduate school (also at UF: Go Gators!) in entomology & nematology, until my first son was born. I always say that I haven't been bored a day since! Although I practiced in the field of dentistry for 27 years as a "career", I will never stop learning. After 13 years of homeschooling my 3 children, I fell in love with teaching just about anything, but my greatest passion is teaching my students, as I did my children, to love the Lord their God with all their heart, soul, mind, and strength.
