As we begin the 2018-19 school year, I realize how fortunate I am to have been a part of the Trailside school community since it first opened five years ago. This year, we encourage students to "Go where there is no path. . . and leave a trail.” As I develop relationships with students, I want to help them recognize their talents and pursue their interests in order to blaze a trail unique to them.
In my role as Reading Specialist, I will continue to work with students to build their literacy skills so that they become successful, lifelong learners. I will also provide professional development and instructional support and coaching to teachers in the content areas.
A graduate of Purdue University, I have also earned a Master of Education degree from Marymount University and a Reading Specialist Professional Studies Certificate from Shenandoah University.
My family has lived in the community for over 20 years, and my three sons graduated from Stone Bridge High School. When I'm not working, I enjoy walking, taking classes at the gym, supporting Washington sports, and going out to dinner with my husband. I also love traveling, skiing, hiking. and watching a variety of sports.
