I was raised in Gulf Breeze and attended Gulf Breeze Elementary, Middle, and High School. Half of my elementary teachers are now my colleagues. In high school, I completed the dual enrollment through Pensacola Junior College and graduated with my AA one month prior to graduating with my high school diploma. The following year I began the Physical Education Teacher Education program at the University of West Florida. I completed numerous practicum hours and my full student teaching at Gulf Breeze Elementary School, and I was lucky enough to take over the PE position after Ms. Davidson retired several years ago!
