I am a graduate of Loudoun County Public Schools. I went to Radford University and received a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education K-5 and a Master's degree in Special Education K-12. My first teaching job was in Roanoke, Virginia. I taught 2nd grade and special education 3rd-5th. Then I moved back to Loudoun County and have been teaching at Emerick ever since (18 years!). I taught special education K-4th, 3rd grade regular education and now am teaching in 5th grade. I live in Stephens City, VA with my husband, son, and two dogs.
