    The famous Zig Ziglar quote says, “Success is when opportunity meets preparation,” and I have been preparing for this opportunity for a long time. Born and raised in a suburb of Detroit, I graduated from the University of Michigan with a B.A. in Spanish and English, and began my teaching career in 1995. I spent 11 years as a teacher, and earned my first M.A. in Education. From there I spent three years working in the Office of State and Federal Programs as a curriculum and assessment specialist. Always willing to try something new, I accepted a position as a principal at an American international school in Malaysia and remained for six years. Upon returning to the U.S., I continued my career as a principal in the great state of Florida for the last 6 years. During that time, I’ve earned an additional M.A. in Theology and an M.Ed in Curriculum and Instruction.

    I look forward to experiencing the greatness that is Plato Academy-Tampa, and working together with all of you to make it even greater!
