Welcome to the 2018 - 2019 school year!
I am very excited to begin my first year at Riverside High School. I was raised in Ashburn, VA, and a graduate of LCPS at Broad Run High School. Following that I continued my education pursuing my undergraduate degree at Christopher Newport University gaining a Bachelor of Arts in History. I obtained my Master of Arts in Teaching at Christopher Newport University as well (Go Captains!).
When I am not in the classroom, I love to travel around the world, or throughout the US. When I don't have time to travel, I love to dance and go to various fitness classes and sporting events. I also enjoy spending time with my family as well as the new addition Lucy, a toy Austrailian Shepherd.
If you have any questions, comments, or concerns about the class, please feel free to contact me via email.

Reassessments are an option for students who earn below an 84% on the original assessment. Prior remediation is required before taking the reassessment. Remediation assignments and reassessments must be completed in accordance with the published deadlines. Students may earn up to a 84% on the reassessment.
