Welcome back Falcons! I hope you were able to find time to relax and have fun this summer. I am very excited and proud to serve as the Assistant Principal of Forest Grove. As we begin the 2021-2022 school year, I have renewed energy and excitement to help ensure success of our students. As our Falcons know, we strive everyday to be Respectful, Responsible, and CHAMPions.
As a Loudoun County native and a graduate from Potomac Falls High School, I feel privideged to work for LCPS where the priority is preparing our students for the 21st century where students are provided opportunities for authentic learning. The 2021-2022 school year marks my 12th year in education and 4th year as Assistant Principal at Forest Grove. I earned a Bachelors of Science in Elementary Education with a concentration in English and Special Education from Radford University. I then went on and completed a Masters of Science degree in Educational Leadership from Shenandoah University. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my husband, 3 year old son, and 1 year old daughter. You can often find me cheering on the Burgandy and Gold, as well as the rest of the local DC sports teams.There are many exciting things happening this year at Forest Grove. I am confident that our staff will work hard to support each of our Falcons to achieve greatness and move forward in their learning, especially after a year of uncertainty. I look forward to working and collaborating with the students, families, staff and the community to help foster a life long love of learning.
