Degrees and Certifications:
Reading Specialist K-5
I am very excited to start my second year here at Countryside!
I believe a strong background in literacy sets a child up for great success. I will strive to ensure that each child I work with gets that foundation. I am very excited to work with all the children and help them reach their greatest potential!
A Little About Me:
I am originally from Buffalo, New York where I worked with Elementary and Middle School age students. Ever since I was young I dreamed about being a teacher. Growing up I always had a longing to move to the south (I hate the cold, and Buffalo is ALWAYS cold). I visited Virginia many times while growing up and fell in love! I knew I wanted to move here one day and teach. I am so happy to be here, living out my dream and helping students find their love of reading.
In my free time I love reading, spending time with my two dogs, and going hiking.
I have two dogs, Mija and Porsche and a cat, Klementine.
I went to Canisius College in Buffalo, NY. I got my undergrad in Early Childhood and Childhood Education and my masters in Literacy.
After I finished my masters in 2017, I moved to Virginia!
