I am the wife of a retired Navy F-14 pilot which gave me the opportunity to teach in Texas, Florida, Norfolk and Virginia Beach Virginia. I started teaching here at Potowmack in 2001 and have loved the opportunity to teach our young little "PMK" Eagles and so happy to call Potowmack Elementary my home. I currently achieved National Board Teacher Certification (NBCT). It is a great honor for me to represent Potowmack Elementary as the first Physical Educator from Loudoun County to become a National Board Certified Teacher. I also received my Masters of Education in Curriculum and Instruction with emphasis in Physical Education at George Mason University. I am so glad I went through the personal learning journey of earning my Masters, as well as achieving NBTC. I have gained a new perspective on how to teach and reach all my students. All the hard work is a benefit for my students because I feel that I am a much better teacher for going through the process.
I feel strongly about keeping the old Presidential Fitness tests alive and well here at Potowmack. Our PMK Fit Eagle Club now incorporates all the Presidential Fitness standards. The PMK Fit Eagle students helped me design an awesome shirt that is awarded to the students that achieve ALL 5 fitness standards. Students that don't achieve all 5 standards are awarded a PMK Fit Eagle Medal that the students are proud to wear. Our wonderful PTA has been generous to purchase all the shirts and medals for our PMK Fit Eagle students. I am also active with the 5th grade musical. I love to see how the students evolve over the weeks of play practices to the overwhelming awesome final performance. Mr. Thompson & I have four children--Kelly, who's married to Greyson and both are parents of my beautiful granddaughters Finley Rose, and Riley Mae, and grandson Lawson. Scott is married to Alexandra (Alex) and live in Arlington.Brian is married to Samantha and have our awesome grandson Luke Cutler, & Amy who will be getting married Nov 2018 to Hunter. Can't forget about my exercise buddy Wriggly, who keeps me active!
I love anything Pittsburgh !!!---Go Steelers, Pirates, & Penguins!
