Degrees and Certifications:
I love all things reading, writing, creating, and collaborating in English! I aim to create a classroom where students feel comfortable taking chances, asking questions, and trying something new. My mantra is: "The best learning comes from reflecting on our mistakes."
I have been a middle school teacher for 16 years in Maryland and Virginia. I am a reading specialist, ESOL certified, and English endorsed. I am a mama to two young kids, I love all things nature and animals, and photography is my creative outlet. Seeing my students puts a smile on my face, and I love being a teacher!
