     I grew up in a rural town called Eighty-Four in Pennsylvania…home of the 84 Lumber company.  Upon high school graduation, I attended California University of Pennsylvania.  It was originally a state teacher’s college and as a university it continues to have the best Special Education and Technology Education programs in the entire state.  I proudly graduated and earned my teaching degree in Special Education in 1993.   From there I moved to the Winchester, VA area and began my teaching career at Grafton School in Berryville, VA.  I remained there for three years.  Grafton is a year-round private residential school for those students who have severe behavioral and or learning disabilities.  Needless to say, it was a tremendous learning experience and one that I have greatly benefited from over the years.  I then entered the public school system and spent my next four years of teaching at James Wood High School in Frederick County, VA.  I taught grades 9-11 and taught a variety of subjects.  Finally, in 2000, I applied to Loudoun County Public Schools and was welcomed into Harper Park Middle School.  My final destination had been reached.  From the faculty to the students/parents and then to the community…this school is awesome!   

      This year, in addition to teaching two of my own 8th grade English classes, I am also teaching Reading Strategies 8, and co-teaching English 8 with Ms. Fail during both Blocks 4 and 8.  The two of us have a terrific working relationship, and I look forward to yet another exciting and successful year!
