Hello Cardinal Ridge Families! I am very excited for my fourth year in LCPS and starting out as a new Red Wing.
For the past three years I have been a third-grade teacher at Ashburn Elementary School. These were by far the most enriching teaching years for me. I had the opportunity to build on many of my professional skills while making long-lasting relationships with students, parents and colleagues. Over these three years, I've implemented the responsive classroom morning meetings and project based learning in my classroom. I got trained to teach the Reading, Writing and Math Workshops. Last year I joined the school’s Personalized Learning team and had the privilege to initiate PL in my classroom.
I began my teaching life as a preschool teacher and soon realized that teaching was more than just a job for me. I have loved every day of school since then and have dedicated over 20 years to the field of education. I have worked in different countries and have taught across the elementary grades.
I am looking forward to getting to meet you and welcoming my new friends back to school.
