I was born and raised in Connecticut. I moved to Port Charlotte, FL a year ago. I have an amazing guy named Ralph by my side and 3 beautiful and talented daughters; stepdaughter Zoe Christine, Gabriella and Victoria Rose.
In the field of education, I have over 30 years experience. when working with children, my goal is to bring out the creativity and willingness to learn in each and every child. Along with, the joy in a child's eye and smiling face, when I am working with them.
The things I enjoy the most when I'm not teaching are spending time with my family, going for walks and gardening.

Teaching is a passion of mine and has been since my earliest memories as a precocious five year old. It is my mission to instill a life-long love for learning in my students. My classroom philosophy and approach inspires children to learn with play-based activities that support, nurture and challenge little learners in an early childhood classroom. Social-emotional skills are also embedded throughout the day. Children learn by doing, investigating, problem-solving and exploring the world around them. I want school to be a safe place where my students feel loved, valued and confident.
I have been with Foundations since January of 2015 and I feel blessed to be a part of this amazing teaching team! I have over 19 years of teaching experience in a preschool setting, which includes over 12 years as a VPK instructor. I have received my CDA and Director's Credentials and I am certified in First Aid and CPR. I am also working towards my Bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education.
I am married to my best friend and we share an amazing young man who is at Lemon Bay High School. Family is very important to me! In my spare time, if I don't have a book in my hand, I like to travel, spend time out in nature and photograph my travels and sights.
I'm so happy to help develop and nurture your children along side Ms. Julienne and Ms. Diane. I'm originally from Panama and moved to the USA in 1999. I first arrived in Indiana and then in 2002 moved to Florida.
I have three incredible children who always keep me amazed with how talented and funny they are. They mean the world to me.
Some of the thinks I enjoy are dancing, painting and having fun with my kids. My favorite snacks are snickers, peanuts and cashews.
I'm a Zumba Fitness instructor when outside of school which I enjoy immensely. Something else that keeps me happy are the hugs and smiling faces of the children here at Foundations.
