I have been teaching at Hillside Elementary School since its opening in 1998. I taught third grade at Hillside before becoming a reading specialist. Prior to coming to Loudoun County, I taught kindergarten in Johnstown, Pennsylvania for two years. I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education from Indiana University of Pennsylvania and a Master's degree in Reading from Shenandoah University. In my spare time, I enjoy exercising, reading, and listening to music.
"There's no such thing as a kid who hates reading. There are kids who love reading, and kids who are reading the wrong books." This quote by James Patterson represents my view on reading. As educators, we strive to instill the love of reading in our students.
