Thanks for stopping by! I'm an EL Teacher at Smart's Mill, teaching English and Science in 6th, 7th, and 8th grades, working with EL newcomers and general education students. I look forward to working with the Mavericks again this year! I was born and raised in McLean, Virginia, attended JMU for a bachelors degree in Political Science in International Affairs, GMU for a masters degree in ESL Education, am certified in both ESL and Secondary English, and semi-fluent in Spanish. I've taught many years in the DMV area, and worked with students of all ages, from elementary through adults. I enjoy being outdoors, traveling, and spending time with family, especially my two young boys. My planning periods are blocks 3 and 7. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
