Welcome to 2nd grade 2018-2019! While reading and sharing exciting books and the joy of writing, discovering the wonderful "why" of math, and learning about science and history, we are going to have a wonderful and exciting year! This will be my 5th year here at Algonkian, 13th year in Virginia, and 16th year teaching overall. My teaching experiences began with early childhood and include Kindergarten, 3rd grade through 5th grade, and 7th grade math. Originally from Gaithersburg, Maryland, I am a graduate of the University of Maryland and Frostburg State University in Maryland. When not in school, I enjoy spending time with my husband and 5 children, bike riding, roller skating, tennis, basketball, baking, reading, and movie night.
