This is my 6th year at Lowes Island and my 14th year in education. My experience is varied and includes teaching English in Japan, substitute teaching, working as a special education teacher assistant, and teaching kids with special needs. Prior to my time in education, I worked as a Human Resources Manager, which I believe gives me a unique view on preparing students for independence (our ultimate goal). My philosophy revolves around building strong relationships with my students, so that they trust me and are willing to risk engaging in higher level thinking.
I live in the Potomac Falls area with my husband, high school aged son, and my dog (Zucchini). I also have a son in college who plays football at Morehead State University. My outside interests include reading, travel (though not much this year!), and taking long walks with my family.
I look forward to an engaging year with our Lowes Island family!
