Welcome to the 2017-2018 School Year!
I am excited to be teaching Spectrum. I started my teaching career in Maryland at a gifted and talented science magnet school teaching language arts and science. I also served as the science department chair. When my family moved to Ashburn in 1999 I joined the staff of Farmwell Station Middle School teaching 7th and 8th grade science. I had the opportunity to open the libraries at Heritage High School and Trailside Middle School.
I am a lifelong learner continuing to complete courses and workshops in the teaching profession.
My goal is that my students will also become lifelong learners. I hope students will spend the year making connections with what they learn and see its relevance to everyday life.
I love to read, spend time with my family, volunteer with Girl Scouts, watch football in the fall and lacrosse in the spring.
