Southwest Florida Region
I was born and raised in - "the biggest-little-state in the union" - Rhode Island. As a "New Englindah",
I enjoyed so many great memories; from swimming in the ocean at Narragansett Bay, to witnessing the autumn foliage, to playing in the snow.
However, as so many northeasterners do, I decided to trade in my snow boots & gloomy winters for palm trees & sunshine. In 2005, I moved to Florida and became a full-time resident of Fort Myers.
What's so special about Rhode Island?
Since I am a native "chowdah head" - of course I am a huge fan of the Red Sox, Celtics & Bruins of Boston, and the Mighty Patriots of New England!
Even though we have enjoyed much success over the years, I am old enough to remember when we weren't so fortunate as a sports town.
One of the benefits of living in southwest Florida is the opportunity to attend spring training games - "my" Red Sox just happen to train in Fort Myers!
Boston is the City of Champions!

I worked in the retail & customer service industry for many years. However, after the 2008 recession, I decided to make a career change and pursue a career in education.
In 2010, I began teaching middle school math for the Lee County School District - first as a substitute teacher, then a few years later my own classroom.
I really enjoyed teaching math and thought I would be doing it for awhile. Unfortunately, this proved not to be the case - read on to learn about my journey.
