Welcome to 4th grade! I am so excited for my 12th year teaching and my 3rd year at Hamilton! Before coming to Hamilton, I taught 5th, 4th, and 3rd grade in Loudoun County. I also taught 3rd grade at Hilton Head Preparatory School in South Carolina. I graduated from James Madison University with a Bachelors Degree in Interdisciplinary Liberal Studies and a Masters Degree in Elementary Education. While at JMU, I played on the softball team as a pitcher and even got to pitch against the Olympic Softball Team! My husband and I have a five year old daughter, a two year old daughter and a 7 month old black lab puppy. I love doing anything active with my family, but absolutely love going to the beach with them! I also enjoy reading, cooking, playing/watching all sports (especially baseball and football- Go Phillies! Go Eagles!), and playing with our puppy Griffey! :) I am so excited to meet each and every one of my students and I am looking forward to a fabulous year!
