    Hello Sterling Pioneers--  

    I am thrilled to be teaching FACS this year! This is my 21st year of teaching and my first one at Sterling Middle School. Previously, I have worked in both Fairfax and Prince William counties as a special education teacher. I love my new job and I'm SO excited to be part of my new community of parents and students. 

    I live in Haymarket, Virginia with my husband and 3 kids. My husband is a DC firefighter, my daughter is going to be a senior at Virginia Tech, my oldest son will be a senior in high school, and my youngest son will be entering his freshman year of high school. All of their interests and activities keep me very busy throughout the week!

    In my free time during the summer and fall, I enjoy spending time at Lake Anna, on the dock with my friends and family! I also love to travel when I can to experience the many different landscapes of our world. I play the acoustic guitar, like to read, and enjoy watching the Washington Capitals play and Redskins football games on Sundays!

    If you ever have any questions or concerns to discuss, please feel free to get in touch with me via email or phone. 

    I look forward to having a great year in FACS!
