Master's in Arts of Teaching: Inclusive Early Childhood Education
Hey Arcola family! I grew up and attended school in Fairfax County, graduating from Chantilly High School. From there, I got my undergraduate and Master's at James Madison University in Inclusive Early Childhood Education. Part of my student teaching was completed in 3rd grade at Arcola Elementary, where I was graciously welcomed and taught to teach in a supportive environment. After graduation, I began working with the Infant and Toddler Connection of Fairfax-Falls Church doing home visits with children birth to age three. I returned to Arcola to teach preschool for two years before making the switch to second grade and it is the BEST! this will be my third year in 2nd grade. Last year, my husband and I welcomed our first son, Liam on December 8th. We also have two adorable (and energetic) lab mixes, Copley and Garvey, who keep us active and outdoors! I am looking forward to an incredible year!
