This is my 23nd year teaching and my 2nd year at Riverside! I grew up in WV, but then headed to Maryland for college. I earned a BS in Economics and Finance fromTowson University and a Masters Degree from Johns Hopkins University. I spent my first 5 years teaching outside of Baltimore then moved to Old Town Alexandria and taught at Potomac Falls High School. Most recently, I've come from Fairfax County, after 12 years of teaching AP Psychology! I live in Winchester with my husband and I'm looking forward to another great year.
