Degrees and Certifications:
I am very excited to be a part of the Lion Family! As a Health and Physical Education teacher, I love sharing my passion for finding joy through movement with students.
I was born and raised in Texas but have been a Virginia resident since 2006. I love all things outdoor. I enjoy hiking, camping, going to the beach, walking my two dogs (Archie and Ruby) and biking. I love the outdoors so much that I have made my home as green as possible with my house plants (I have over 45!). I am an avid yogi and love sharing my passion for yoga with others. I also teach Zumba and indoor cycling at Life Time Fitness. One of my favorite things to do is spend time with my four children and my husband Scott. As a family, we have lived in both Russia and Poland (did I mention I love warm weather climates?) allowing us to explore parts of Europe.
I look forward to getting to know my students in PE! I believe that my job is to share my love for fitness and healthy living, but most importantly, I want to provide students with the opportunity to learn and practice skills that will give them confidence to pursue activities that will bring them joy throughout their lives. Go Lions!
My Educational Philosophy:
When planted in a safe loving space where the educator shares her passion for learning, growing, and becoming a better human being, students have the ability to not only learn, but to be inspired to approach all aspects of life as a learner.
