This is my third year as a Special Education Resource teacher at Emerick Elementary School. I graduated from the University of Delaware with a dual degree in Elementary and Special Education. I taught for 7 years in Maryland before moving to Virginia. After enjoying substitute teaching for several years at Emerick, I decided to return to teaching full-time.

    My family lives in Purcellville and our three sons are all Emerick alumni. We enjoy family time outdoors with sports and activities. We also love to vacation to Walt Disney World!

    I look forward to working with you and your child this year.  I know it will be a great year for Emerick Eagles!
