Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to 6th Grade Language Arts and READ!
This is my second year teaching English in Loudoun County, and I have previous experience as an 11th and 12th Grade English Teacher in Maryland. I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in English from Radford University and my Master of Arts degree in Secondary English Education from Towson University. This year, I am very excited to be teaching both READ and 6th Grade Language Arts! When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending quality time with friends and family, traveling, hiking, reading, adventuring around town, cooking, and eating far too much ice cream.
This summer, I traveled to Ireland and toured Dublin, Galway, and Killarney. I joined fellow Joycean literary enthusiasts in a literary tour around Dublin, rode on horseback through the Irish countryside, and walked along the edge of the Cliffs of Moher. My travels inspire the writing that I create alongside my students in the classroom.
Please do not hesitate to contact me, and I am looking forward to a terrific school year!
