Degrees and Certifications:
This is my first year at Rock Ridge and I am grateful and excited to be here. I teach World History I, a subject which I have long been interested in and which has driven me to constantly learn about the world and its people. After graduating from George Mason University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in International Studies, I lived overseas, a life experience I consider to be invaluable in my calling as an educator. I have lived my life in a multilingual environment which has continually spurred my fascination with languages and their roles in culture and history. I later received a Master of Education degree with endorsement in ESL from the University of Virginia.
I have been teaching at area private schools for the past 7 years where I also coached boys and girls soccer. I have two children who attend LCPS and are involved in local athletics. I look forward to a great year working with Rock Ridge students.
