    I am an EL teacher. I am looking forward to building a supportive community with all of my English Language Learners. We can all contribute to our community.

    I have a graduate degree in teaching ESOL/ELL from University of Mary Washington. My undergraduate degree is in Chinese and Spanish. This is my first year in Loudoun. I was an ELL teacher in Prince William County for 4 years and a Mindfulness teacher in fairfax for 1 year.  I also tarught in China for a year and my children attended a year of school in China. It gave me a great perspective of what my students go through!

    I love to travel internationally and spend time in DC. I have a daughter who is a college student in Philadelphia. She rows crew for her school and has a double major in Physics and Chinese. My son is in high school and rows crew for a boatclub in DC. He is interested in stuying something in the STEM field and Spanish. Multiple languages are extremely important to us!
