Winners of the 2015-2016 AFJROTC Distinguished Unit award!
AFJROTC Mission: "To develop citizens of character dedicated to serving their nation and the community."
The objectives of United States Air Force Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps (AFJROTC) are to educate and train high school cadets in citizenship, promote community service, provide instruction in air and space fundamentals, and instill responsibility, character, and self-discipline.
Our AFJROTC program integrates Twenty First Century Skills as defined by the Partnership for 21st Century Skills into all aspects of the program. These include learning and innovation (thinking) skills – critical thinking and problem solving, creativity and innovation, and communication and collaboration.
The AFJROTC program is grounded in the Air Force Core Values of: Integrity First, Service Before Self, and Excellence In All We Do. The curriculum emphasizes Air Force heritage and traditions, the development of flight, applied flight sciences, military aerospace policies, and space exploration.
A four-year program of study will include:
- Academic studies
- Character education
- Life skills education
- Leadership opportunities
- Team-building experiences
- Intramural competition
- Field trips / training opportunities
Each cadet is required to participate in community service activities. The cadets determine which community service activities in which to participate and then organize and execute those opportunities.

Welcome! I am a born and raised Floridan, and I've lived in numerous areas of Central Florida.I grew up in Brevard county, moved to the Orlando area for college, and now I am enjoying my time as a Lake County resident.
I graduated from the University of Central Florida with my undergraduate degree in Athletic Training. While working medical was something that I always wanted and loved to do, I found myself loving the teaching aspect more and more. I made the switch to a full time teacher and I could not be happier! I got my Masters degree in Special Education in 2014.
With my family being from the Virginia area, I grew up a diehard Redskins fan. As a true fan I'm weathering the ups and downs of my team. I also am a season ticket holder for my UCF knights, and spend many fall Saturdays at the games. Outside of football, hockey is my other sporting love. I am a Washington Capital fan, and cheer my team on from afar.
I am so excited for all the fun and challenges this year will bring, and I have amazing students. At any time during the school year if I can be of assistance, please don't hesitate to contact me. Go Jackets!
