I have a Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Education from Bloomsburg State University (PA) and a Master Degree in Reading from George Mason University. I taught 3rd grade at Douglass Elementary School and have been a Reading Specialist at Douglass, Leesburg, Aldie, Emerick and Seldens Landing Elementary Schools. I am currently at Seldens Landing and Hillside (my first year). My son graduated from James Madison U. (B.S. in Biology) and is pursuing his Doctorate at Indiana U. in Bloomington, IN. (Microbiology) My daughter graduated from Liberty U. in Vocal Performance and Music Education. and is in her 2nd year as choral director at Seneca Ridge Middle School. In my spare time I like to spend time with my family, read, knit and travel. I am very excited to be here at Hillside and to instill the love of reading in our students!
