I am so excited to serve the students, staff, parents and community as Principal of Tropic Isles Elementary.   We have been hitting the ground running to have an amazing start of the 2019-2020 school year.   I spent my childhood and early teens in in the tri-state area of Philadelphia.   I moved from Cherry Hill, New Jersey to Cape Coral in the mid 1980’s.   I graduated from Cape Coral High School in 1988 – Go Seahawks!  After high school, I attended Edison Community College and transferred to USF in Tampa to complete my studies.  I graduated with a degree in Special Education from USF and my Masters of Educational Leadership from FGCU.   I started my teaching career in Lee County 25 years ago at J. Colin English Elementary.  I was a 4th and 5th grade ESE-Resource teacher in an inclusion setting.  After 4 years, I was the Behavior Specialist.  I received my first appointment as Assistant Principal at Gulf Middle School.  From there, I was an Assistant Principal at Gulf Elementary.  For the last 14 years, I served as Principal at Gulf Elementary, Pine Island Elementary and Edgewood Academy.  I have been honored and blessed to have worked with so many talented and exceptional educators.  I have been married for almost 20 years and have 2 children, both in high school.  Being at Tropic Isles Elementary really excites me.  This is a beautiful school with a rich tradition of success, student achievement and quality educational services to our children.  I look forward to meeting all the students and families during Open House on Friday, August 9th from 5:00PM-7:00PM.   We are going to have an amazing school year!
