•  Welcome to Fifth Grade

    Hello and welcome to 5th grade! I hope that you all have had a fun and relaxing summer. This is a very exciting year! It is not only your last year at Horizon, but it is also full of many new and exciting opportunities. 

    If you are not a new Comet, you probably are familiar with me already! I have been part of the Comet family for three years. I began my teaching career here at Horizon teaching 5th grade. I taught third grade for two years, and now I'm very excited to teaching 5th grade for the third year. 

    Background Information

    In 2014, I graduated from Virginia Commonwealth University with my Masters of Teaching, with an undergrad in Interdisciplinary Studies in 2013. A fun fact about myself is that I also went to Horizon Elementary for 3rd-5th grade. I have been a Loudoun County native for the majority of my life, and a Potomac Falls graduate!


    When I’m not in the classroom, I still enjoy being busy as well as relaxing. I enjoy relaxing by the pool (when it is warm enough!), catching up on my favorite TV shows, spending time with friends and family, attending country concerts, and visiting new places. During the summer, my favorite places to be is at the beach with a good book, as well as the lake.

    I’m looking forward to a very fun and successful year and cannot wait to meet all of you! If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
