I am thrilled to be one of the few members of Discovery's inaugural staff returning this year! This will be my 15th year teaching! I taught first and third-grades for 13 years, and I'm so excited to be continuing my career as an EL Specialist! This year, I will be working with Kindergarten, 2nd, 4th, and 5th grades in the Distance Learning setting.
I graduated from James Madison University with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology and a Master of Arts in Teaching with a concentration in Early Childhood Education, and I recently earned my EL Endorsement. I am also a graduate of our very own Broad Run High School. I was born and raised in Loudoun County, and I currently reside in Aldie with my 8-year-old daughter, and my 4-year-old son.
Outside of school, I enjoy playing with my kids, exercising, spending time with family and friends, walking, reading, listening to music, and helping at Studio Bleu Dance Center (where I danced growing up). My family also vacations often in Myrtle Beach, as my father and grandparents live there.
I look forward to another fantastic year with my Trailblazer family!
