I am so excited to join the Golden Dolphins community as a fourth-grade teacher! I recently got married over the summer. I grew up in the Northern Virginia area and went to the University of Mary Washington for my undergrad and my masters. This will be my 10th year teaching. I previously taught in fourth and fifth grade in Fairfax County, and I am passionate about education and believe my students are capable of anything they put their minds to. When I am not teaching, I enjoy working out, spending time with my family, cheering on the Washington Nationals, and playing with my dog. I can't wait to meet the students at Ashburn Elementary!
