Teacher's Aide
All Teacher's Aide

This is my first year at CJDS as a teacher’s assistant. I have been a parent and volunteer for the past 8 years and now I have the privilege to work with all of the students and teachers on a daily basis.

Previously, I taught 3rd and 4th grade science at The Runnels school in Baton Rouge, La. I taught 2nd grade general studies at The Martin J Gottlieb School in Jacksonville, FL and taught 4th grade ESOL and Pre K-Kindergarten Special Ed in the Duval County Public Schools in Jacksonville.

I have an  BA degree in liberal arts from University of Florida, BAE in elementary education from University of North Florida and an Masters of Social Work degree from Florida State University.

In my free time, I enjoy travelling and spending time with my family.
