    I do not have planning since I am only at school during the afternoons.  Students can reach me through remind at anytime or set up a day to stay after with me for extra help.

    A little about me:
    Broad Run has always been home to me.  I am one of nine siblings, 3 nephews and 1 niece who have attended and graduated from this wonderful school.  To top it off even my husband is even an alumni.   I started my secondary education at Longwood University, where I played varsity soccer.  I loved my time there but felt like I needed a larger school and finished at James Madison University.  I did not play soccer for JMU but filled my time with tutoring middle school and high school math students, being a camp counselor during the summer at Camp Thunderbird in SC, coaching a swim special olympics team, and traveling when I could.  After college, I came back to Broad Run to start my teaching career and I haven't left.  I am in my 20th year of teaching and couldn't see myself any other place.  I have five daughters and a few fish at home, so I keep myself busy when not in school.  I still enjoy watching soccer, but prefer cooking and hiking these days.  I am excited for another year at my second home and look forward to what it brings.
