Welcome to 2nd Grade! The 2020-21 school year will be my tenth year teaching for LCPS, and my fifth year here at Rosa Lee Carter Elementary. I received my B.A. in Psychology from Boston University in 1993 and my M.Ed. in Elementary Education from Old Dominion University in 2009. Although I chose teaching a little later in life, it's not a surprise I ended up in this great profession because I grew up in a family full of teachers - my mom, dad, aunt, uncle and grandmother all created a legacy of teaching in New Hampshire that I am proud to continue here in Virginia.
When I'm not at school, I enjoy reading, cooking, traveling, and being Mom to three great boys. My youngest son Austin is a sophomore at Potomac Falls High School, and my older two sons (fraternal twins) are seniors in college. Owen is attending Old Dominion University in Norfolk, VA and Jack is attending Elon University in Elon, NC.
As a fellow parent, I can appreciate the dedication and hard work you put in to raising your children here in Loudoun County and encouraging them to take advantage of the variety of opportunities our area has to offer. I'm excited to work with you and your child this year! Second grade is a lot of fun, and I enjoy seeing students' confidence and independence grow as they discover new things and challenge themselves in new ways.
