Hi! I am excited to join the team at Smart's Mill this year. I spent the past three years teaching middle school in Fairfax County and I am a proud graduate of Chantilly High School in Fairfax. I am a Hokie AND a Hoo: I completed my undergraduate degree in Spanish at Virginia Tech and my Master's in Foreign Language Education at the University of Virginia.
I love teaching and I'm passionate about acquiring language through literacy. I like to read, a lot! When I'm not in the classroom, you can find me with a book and a cup of coffee. My husband and I also love the outdoors and traveling. We hike with our dog, Ozzie on the weekends. We also like to run and bike on the W&OD Trail together.
I'm looking forward to working with the students and staff at Smart's. Go Mavericks!
