I have been teaching for 24 years, all of them in Sarasota County. Previously, I taught 6th grade English for 10 years at another middle school and 7th and 8th grade ELA at Pine View. For seven years, I worked as the ESE Liaison in charge of Admissions and all Pine View Education Plans for Gifted services. It is a JOY to return to the 6th grade classroom and be able to share my love of reading with the special students at Pine View.
My daughter, Leilani, attended Pine View from 2nd-8th grade and is now in the Riverview Internaltional Baccalaureate program where she can play volleyball with her teammates. Her experience going through seven grade levels here at Pine View has given me an up close view of what parents can expect from the accelerated, rigorous curriculum.
Let's plan to have a wonderful year together!!
