About Me
What do you do at PCA?: 

I'm the Principal.

Describe your Educational Background from High School to where you are now.: 

I grauated high school in Seminole, Florida where I grew up.  I attended the University of Florida and majored in music education.  After graduation I started my teaching career as a high school band director.  During this time I earned my Masters in Educational Leadership from the University of South Florida.

What inspired you to become a teacher or work in a school if not a teacher?: 

I was inspired by my high schol band director, JF Thomas.  I saw how dedicated he was to his students.  He never gave up on me and pushed me to be my best.

What are some of your hobbies?: 

In the winter I love to snow ski.  In the summer I play golf, hike 14ers, and love to go camping with family and friends.  My year round hobby is watching and following every Gator sporting event.

What was your first job? What did it teach you? : 

My first job out of college was at Gibbs High School in St. Petersburg Florida.  I was hired to be the band director but I also taught math classes as well.  Once I started teaching I also coached the girls soccer team and the boys and girls tennis teams.  This job taught me how truly amazing young people can be and that everyone, regardless of where they came from or what they have been through, deserves an education and the chance to be whatever they want to be.
