Hello, Welcome to Third Grade!! I received my undergraduate degree in Elementary Education from Radford University. Following graduation, I decided to help Virginia Tech begin their Masters of Reading program. I received my Masters in Reading from Virginia Tech one year after graduating from Radford University. In November 2009, I received my National Board Certification. This was be my 14th year teaching in Loudoun County. I have taught first, second and third grade. I am a HUGE New York Yankees and New York Giants fan! My family is very important to me and I love spending time with them. I have three children, two boys and a baby girl. I have a first grader and third grader that will be here this year as a shark. I look forward to a great year ahead!!!I am even more excited to embark on my second year in a co-taught PBL classroom with Mrs. Kleffman. We can't wait to see where our little sharks minds go during our Projects!
