Welcome to 5th Grade! This is going to be an exciting and interesting year! This will be my 7th year teaching at Tolbert. I am excited to return to 5th grade after a few years in the lower grades. I am an Air Force brat who was born in Hawaii and attended high school in Belgium. I hold a Masters Degree in Special Education from the University of Tennessee. Before coming to Tolbert, I spent nine years as a special education teacher with Fairfax County Schools. When I am not working, I am spending time with my husband and our three children at home in Purcellville.
