Welcome to 2nd grade 2020-2021! While reading & sharing exciting books and the joy of writing, discovering the wonderful "why" of math, and learning about science & history, we are going to have a wonderful and exciting year! This will be my 7th year here at Algonkian, 15th year in Virginia, and 18th year teaching overall. My teaching experiences began with early childhood and include Kindergarten, 2nd 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.
