I am super excited about starting my second year at Fredrick Douglass. I love the community so much that I moved here. I started teaching in a preschool setting in Arkansas. I continued my education as my three children got older. I then did student teaching in kindergarten and 4th grade in Arkansas. I soon moved to middle school and into special education. My husband's job once again moved us to Virginia. I worked at Sterling Middle for three years as a special education teacher. I am now at Fredrick Douglas. Last year I was in first and fifth and this year I am in fifth grade.
As I mentioned, my husband's job has moved us around. We have no plan on moving and Virginia will be our retirement home. My husband and I are both from Kansas. We lived in Kansas, Utah, Arkansas, and Virginia. We have been married for 22 years and have four children ( Raven - 26, Hunter - 23 (Hope - daughter-law -23), and Bella - 20. This will be our first year of being empty nesters as our youngest is going to Old Dominio, as a transfer. Our children joke that we are not empty nesters because we have four dogs.
Please reach out anytime. I always like to let parents know that I have been on both sides of the table. I have two children with special needs.
