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!
