Hi, I’m Mrs. Webster
I graduated from Saint Leo University with a master’s degree in Business Administration. I have a certification in Business Education grades 6- 12 and I am Reading Endorsed by the State of Florida Department of Education. I started my journey as a Reading Teacher at Kathleen Middle School in 2016. I am excited to educate students currently in the 7th and 8th grade.
I believe that the true gifts of teaching are those experienced in the classroom (traditional and virtual). My own child has taught me to look at the individual, not to assume anything, and to be flexible toward change. We're in this journey together; please feel free to communicate with me about your child’s reading development.
