I believe in being a passionate, involved educator. It has the power to change a whole person’s attitude and life trajectory. I live for the innumerous opportunities to BE that person who makes a positive difference. Being a role model for children is especially satisfying. Children are the foundation of the future. The results of learning, can be exponential!
I began my formal training as an Educator in Delaware where I built a home and taught my four children. I earned my AA Early Childhood Education at a highly rated DTCC Child Development Center. I worked as a Paraprofessional in 9th grade, 3rd grade and substituting in elementary schools.
I enjoyed my learning experiences so much that I earned my BA Elementary Education from Wilmington University.
I taught 3 years as a Lead teacher of 4 & 5 year olds in Smithtown, NY. This is where I was born.
I sold my home in Delaware and moved to Florida where I taught in Public and Private Schools for 12 years. I earned my MA in Elementary Education Math/Science emphasis then continued courses towards a MA Education Leadership USFSM.
I met my husband, David Blizard who was born in Alabama and moved to South Carolina where I taught 5th grade. We moved to Alabama September 2020 to purchase the ACE Hardware Store in Stevenson & live closer to his family.
Now my children are grown up and I have 3 grandchildren, a puppy & kitty cat!
It is my honor to have the opportunity to join the Jasper Elementary Team to teach Pre-K this year with the Amazing Miss Audrey! Let’s have FUN learning!
