• I was born in England and grew up in a seaside town called Southsea, so you might notice I have a slight accent. I later moved to London and a little later still to San Francisco where I enjoyed being mom to my big Brady Bunch of 5 children before we all adventured across country to Leesburg in 2008. Now that my children are all grown up, I’m blessed to be a school mom to an ever expanding family of students.


    Teaching, laughing, and learning alongside my students is one of my favorite things to do, but I also love reading, hiking, exploring new places and spending time with my family, friends, and two English Bulldog grand doggies Bella and Lola. I earned my Master of Education from George Mason University and this year will be my seventh year teaching. I am excited to be part of the FDES community and be a Star this year!
