Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! I'm looking forward to another great year teaching first grade! This is my third year at Arcola and second year teaching first grade. Prior to that, I was the PALS Tutor and worked with students on early literacy intervention. I feel very fortunate to be with such a great school community! I earned a B.A. in Economics from the University of Maryland -- Go Terps! -- and a M.A. in Teaching Early Childhood and Elementary Education from Trinity Washington University. I've had the unique opportunity to teach in both public and Montessori schools. Although I grew up in Pennsylvania and Maryland, I have lived in Ashburn with my husband, daughter, two sons and two dogs for many years. I'm looking forward to working with your children as they learn and grow this school year!
