Degrees and Certifications:
Here is some information about me! This will be my twelvth year teaching at Loudoun County Public Schools. I taught one year of Kindergarten, and I have been teaching first grade ever since! My favorite part of my classroom is our classroom library, where we have hundreds and hundreds of books. I just know you might have a new favorite in there somewhere!
I live in Leesburg, Virginia, and I am originally from Ohio. I enjoy reading, sewing, singing, movies, board games, and walking. I have a son who turns eight in September. He has a wild imagination that I truly enjoy. I also have a fluffy black and white cat named Wicket.
This will be my seventh year at Arcola Elementary School, and I love it! I earned my B.S. in Elementary Education at Grove City College in Pennsylvania, and I recently completed my Masters in Education for Educational Technology through the American College of Education!
My favorite movie is Star Wars, Return of the Jedi. When I was little, I liked to play with My Little Ponies, Legos, Tinker Toys, and Star Wars toys. I liked to watch Fraggle Rock, and Scooby Doo. I read books like Frog and Toad and the Berenstein Bears. Dr. Seuss was my favorite author. I liked to write stories, climb trees, and canoe. I also competed in Odyssey of the Mind, and was in Girl Scouts. I spent my summers biking to the library and checking out lots of books!
