Welcome to the 2019- 2020 school year!
I am very excited to begin my second 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 receiving 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, sporting events (Go Skins, Nats, and Caps!!), as well as spending time with my family.
If you have any questions, comments, or concerns about the class, please feel free to contact me via email.
All of my classes will have a Google Classroom page, the class code is listed at the top at the course information packet.

Summative assessments include tests, essays, and projects and will determine 90% of the grade. Formative assessments, including homework and classwork, will determine 10% of the grade.
Reassessments are an option for students who earn below an 83% 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 83% on the reassessment.
Retests will ONLY be given on Monday and Tuesday mornings at 8:15 and on Wednesday afternoons.
