At Potomac Falls, we value
building relationships, working hard,
and making connections to ensure students are
life, college, and career ready.
To Students, Staff, and Parents of Potomac Falls High School:I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Childhood Psychology from George Mason University (a very long time ago I might add) and in 2013, I earned my master's degree with an emphasis in K-12 reading at Shenandoah University in Winchester, Virginia. Teaching is my second career which began in 2000. I worked, first, as an elementary school teacher in Prince William County, Virginia and then spent the last 10 years teaching reading in Warren County, Virginia. I am a life-long learner, a passionate educator of literacy, and of course, an avid reader myself. I bring to Potomac Falls these passions and a desire to motivate students not only to use literacy as a means of accomplishing whatever goals they have chosen to set for themselves, but also to simply... "enjoy good books". A literate individual is not passive in nature but is someone who purposely interacts with literacy in all its forms to enrich their lives and participate within our society.I wish to extend an open door policy to all parents, students, and staff."The man who does not read has no advantage over the man who cannot read."-Mark Twain
