8th Grade Physical Science Teacher
The 2019-20 school year will be my 24th year of teaching. I earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Education from Providence College and a Master’s Degree in Educational Administration from Virginia Tech. Most of my teaching experience has been at the middle school level throughout Fairfax and Loudoun Counties; however, I have also taught Earth&Space and Labs Biology at Chantilly High School and fifth grade at Mill Run Elementary.
My goal is for each student to grow as confident and curious explorers of our world. Through the use of computer technology, inquiry based investigations, and lab activities, students will connect classroom instruction to real world situations. It is fun to watch students learn through their own discovery, and I believe that in the end, this is how students learn best.
Eagle Ridge is a wonderful place to come each day. I feel fortunate to live and work in such a friendly community.
