    I am truly a native of this area having grown up in Fairfax County and graduating from Oakton High School. I earned my undergraduate degree from Virginia Tech in Elementary Education PK-7 and Intellectual Disabilities K-12. Go HOKIES!! After teaching 6th grade Middle School regular education for several years in Prince William County, I traveled to Evanston, IL to attend Northwestern University where I completed my Masters' Degree in Learning Disabilities K-12. Throughout the years I have taught Preschool through 6th grade, regular education and special education, in both Fairfax and Loudoun Counties. My husband and I live in Ashburn, VA and have 3 beautiful daughters! I consider it an honor and a privilege to say that I am teaching here at Steuart Weller Elementary School where I am part of a wonderful faculty and staff.
