Welcome 5th Grade Explorers and Families!I am so excited to be a part of the 5th-grade team at Newton-Lee. I am originally from Leesburg, VA and I even attended Belmont Ridge Middle School, where many of my students will go next year! For my undergraduate degree, I went to James Madison University (Go Dukes!) and received my Bachelor of Science in Anthropology with a minor in Statistics. I then graduated from the University of Virginia's School of Education and Human Development with my Master of Teaching (Go Hoos!). I love to read, travel, complete DIY projects, and be outside. I cannot wait to get to know my students and their families and am looking forward to my eighth school year at Newton-Lee!Please feel free to email me atwith any questions, comments, or concerns!
