I was born in Florida and lived here all my life. I received my degree in Secondary Mathematics through St. Petersburg College. I was inspired to teach math by wonderful 6th grade math teacher and lot of experience tutoring. Math was never easy for me, but that did not stop me from liking it! I was so determined to be good at the subject, I would write the same problem over and over again until I got the problem right, without one mistake! So, when kids tell me there is no way to study math, I say yes there is! I firmly believe practice leads to mastery, and if you can teach a math concept to someone else, you know for sure you mastered the concept. In my spare time, I like to read, write, dance, and play video games.
