Degrees and Certifications:
Hi! I am excited about starting my second year as the gifted resource teacher at DTES! I am originally from Queens, New York City. I got my bachelor's, master's, and gifted endorsement from the City University of New York. In NYC, I taught K, 2nd, and 3rd gifted classes. After moving to Virginia in 2016, I taught 3rd grade Advanced Academics in Fairfax County Public Schools for 6 years. I LOVE working with students and challenging young minds. I hope to nurture students' potential, provide access to rigor and build positive relationships.
I currently reside in Ashburn with my husband and my 3-year-old baby girl. In my free time, I love going for walks and traveling to new places with my family. I look forward to working with everyone this year!
