Degrees and Certifications:
I am starting my third year as an EL teacher, and I am excited to be spending my mornings at Discovery Elementary, and my afternoons at Dominion Trail Elementary.
While my undergrad degree is in Economics from Denison University, I started my teaching path in 2016 first as a substitute, then as a kindergarten teacher assistant. My love of working with students led me to Shenandoah's Career Switcher program, where I became licensed to teach English Learners. This year I have the privilege of working with third grade at Discovery.
I live in Ashburn with my husband, three teenage children, our two dogs and two cats. I love to read, play volleyball, do DIY projects on my home and foster cats through a local shelter.
My goal as a teacher is to make learning fun for my students, and to find ways to get them excited to come to school. I can't wait to celebrate all our successes this year!
