• I am in my fourteenth 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-three 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.  

    This year we are starting a new curriculum full of exploring and learning through play. It is called Tools of the Mind. We are so excited to implement this new 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 is a senior at Virginia Tech. She is studying Human Development with the intent of entering the teaching field. We have a dog named Dixie.
