I look forward to working with your child for the 2018-2019 school year. This is my third year at Freedom High, as a Resource Teacher, but my sixth year as an English Educator. I am teaching two sections of Self-Contained English 9A, one section of Self-Contained English 10A, one Academic Support English 9 with Mrs. Phillips, and one class for Reading Strategies.
I am passionate about what I do, and my greatest joy in life is when I see my students make progress. I wish to see them become better readers and writers.
I hold a Bachelor's degree in Management Information Systems from George Mason University, and am currently pursuing my Master's in Special Education with GMU. I shall be graduating in May of 2019!
I am also currently enrolled in a certification program for Specialized Reading at GMU.
I have been a resident of South Riding for the last 14 years, and love this community. My daughter is a junior at Freedom High, so I am both a parent and an educator.
I would like to end with a quote by William Arthur Ward - Teaching is more than imparting knowledge, it is inspiring change. Learning is more than absorbing facts, it is acquiring understanding.
