• I am in my fifteenth year teaching Starting Towards Excellence in Preschool for LCPS. I have previous taught sixth grade and assisted in both a first grade and kindergarten class. I have been teaching preschool over twenty-four years. I love teaching this age because they are full of excitement and curiosity. They are like sponges that obsorb all that is around them.  

    We are in our second year of a new curriculum full of exploring and learning through play. It is called Tools of the Mind. We are so excited to implement this curriculum and share it with your child. 

    I reside in Loudoun County with my family. Mr. Lani is a principal at Evergreen Mill Elementary.  My son graduated from Christopher Newport University and currently resides in California. He is a computer programmer. My daughter just graduated from Virginia Tech. Her passion for service has led her to a career with a non-profit organization. We have a dog named Dixie.
