Welcome to Fifth Grade
    I have been an elementary teacher for 26 years.  I've taught grades K-6 in Pennsylvania, California, Arizona, and Virginia.  This is my twelfth year of teaching at Pinebrook Elementary. I graduated from Liberty University with a degree in Elementary Education and have a Master's degree from Penn State University in Curriculum and Instruction.  I have four grown children and seven grandchildren.  My youngest son is a graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis and is a helicopter pilot.  I love to travel, gardening, astronomy, hiking, and reading. I've visited more than 25 countries and most of the USA.  A few years ago, my family had taken a trip to Mexico where we saw whale sharks and snorkeled on the reef.  I'm so excited to share my passion for learning with my class!  I hope that fifth grade will be a year of adventure and personal growth.
