• My favorite place to be.
    Welcome Mavericks to 7th grade! This will be another exciting year for my students in language arts as we boost our knowledge of writing and continue to discover new authors as we explore books and short stories.  We will continue to build our technology skills, vocabulary, and focus on Project Based Learning where students will explore, create, and work at their own pace as they discover the preferred way in which they learn best. 
    I am happy to be a part of the Smart's Mill Middle School family.  I have a degree in Political Science and Criminal Justice from Radford University and a master's degree in Special Education with a highly qualified concentration in English/Language Arts from Shenandoah University.  I am a proud graduate of Loudoun County Public Schools.  I live with my husband and three children in Leesburg.  I like to spend my free time reading, playing tennis, and spending time with my family. I look forward to meeting everyone and sharing new beginnings in this school year!
