She then went on and received a Master of Business Administration and a Master of Science in Accounting from the University of Tampa as well. Mrs. Vaillancourt missed the education environment and wanted a career where she could impact others' lives. She therefore left the accounting industry and became a teacher. Before coming to Lutz Prep, she taught in the Hillsborough County Public School System and is certified in Mathematics 5-9. She also earned her ESOL endorsement. Mrs. Vaillancourt is originally from Connecticut but became an official Florida resident in 2011. When she is not in the classroom she enjoys spending time at the beach with her extremely energetic dog, Nola.
