I have the best of both worlds
This is my second year working as the site permanent substitute at Ocean Lakes Elementary. It’s a pleasure to work with students from all grade levels and from so many diverse backgrounds. I feel fortunate to make connections with all the students, whether it be in the classroom, the library, music, art, the cafeteria or simply with a friendly hello in the hallway. I am a U.S. Navy veteran, a military spouse and an ODU Career Switcher. I love my job because I have the best of both worlds. I get to spend every day working with students and I have the flexibility to be a mom. Every day is a different adventure and I look forward to that. Along with all of our amazing teachers, I enjoy watching the students grow as they work hard to reach their educational and social goals. I am looking forward to celebrating another successful school year and all that it may bring.
