Her most recent awards are impressive, but Levene is no stranger to winning awards. While a student at UCF Daytona Beach, she was honored with the award of “Top Education Student,” which is given to only one UCF education student across the campuses. In addition to teaching, she is also a student in UCF’s Instructional Technology master’s program.

Levene’s true passion as a student and as a professional is promoting literacy–and she continues to do so throughout the Central Florida community. But she’s still not done. Next up? A doctorate.
