This will be my 27th year in education. I was a biology teacher in Clarke County Virginia for 8 years before moving over to Loudoun County to be a special education resource teacher in the Biology classroom at Stone Bridge High School. I became the Dean of Students at Stone Bridge the year their population went over 1900 students. I then moved to Harmony Intermediate to be the Dean for 9th grade students. After completion of 2 years as the summer school principal at the Loudoun Valley site, I moved to Freedom to be an assistant principal where I have remained for the past 12 years.
I earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Education, focusing on Biology, from Marshall University…GO HERD!!!, a special education certificate from the University of Virginia, a technology certificate from George Mason University, and my Master’s Degree in administration and supervision from Shenandoah University.
I am an avid hunter and angler and enjoy every aspect of the outdoors. I have been on several mission trips to Haiti, Puerto Rico, and Belize. With the experiences I have had outside of the United States I know firsthand how blessed I am to be working here at Freedom.
I currently have a daughter starting her second year at Liberty University studying Cinematic Arts and a son that is a junior at Musselman High School in Berkeley County.
This year I will have the privilege of working with the senior class as well as the Fine Arts, P.E., and Math departments. I hope to use my vast experience in education to help teachers create engaging lessons that allow students to use their talents in multiple ways to show mastery of the material. I also hope to create a supportive atmosphere with students so they feel comfortable coming to me for any reason.
I look forward to working with the students at Freedom and hope everyone has a great year. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
