I have been teaching at Hillside since the fall of 2016. Prior to coming to Hillside Elementary, I began my career as a full-day kindergarten teacher in New Jersey for a year, then I taught third grade in Pennsylvania for a year. When we moved to Virginia, I began as a 2nd grade teacher at Sterling Elementary here in Loudoun County for 7 years. After that I was a Reading Specialist at Sterling Elementary for a year and then moved into a Literacy Facilitator role for the entire county for three years. I have a Bachelor of Science degree in both Elementary Education and Early Childhood Education from Penn State University. I earned my Master’s degree in Reading from the University of Virginia. I love reading, doing yoga, and playing with my son and our crazy bulldog Rainbow! I believe that every student has a desire to read and learn. It is our job to uncover that desire and get them hooked!
