Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! I'm looking forward to another great school year at Arcola! This is my fifth year at Arcola and first year as an English Language Learner Teacher. I taught first grade for 3 years and was the PALS Tutor (worked with students on early literacy intervention) for a year. I feel very fortunate to be with such a great school community! I earned a B.A. in Economics from the University of Maryland -- Go Terps! -- and a M.A. in Teaching Early Childhood and Elementary Education from Trinity Washington University. I've had the unique opportunity to teach in both public and Montessori schools. Although I grew up in Pennsylvania and Maryland, I have lived in Ashburn with my family for many years. I'm looking forward to working with your children as they learn and grow this school year!
