I am very excited to be starting my fifth year as the Assistant Principal at Rolling Ridge Elementary! It has been my pleasure to be part of the Rolling Ridge family for the past nine years. I served as a 5th grade teacher at Rolling Ridge for five years prior to becoming the Assistant Principal. While teaching at Rolling Ridge, I was named the 2016 Loudoun County Teacher of the Year. I look forward to continuing to build on the relationships with students and families that I have been able to establish over the years.
Prior to coming to Rolling Ridge, I taught three years in Cumberland Elementary in Cumberland County, VA as a reading teacher and one year at Bacon District Elementary in Charlotte County, VA as a science teacher. While teaching at Bacon District Elementary, I was named the Elementary School Teacher of the Year in Charlotte County. Quality instruction is at the core of everything that I believe about education. I look forward to working with the school community to ensure that the needs of every student at Rolling Ridge are met this school year.
My educational experience includes a Bachelor’s Degree in Liberal Studies with a concentration in Elementary Education from Bridgewater College and a Master’s Degree in Education with a concentration in Administration and Supervision from Shenandoah University.
Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my wife Layne, who teaches at Ashburn Elementary, and my daughters Harper, Kennedy, and Bailey. I also enjoy watching movies, hunting, and watching the Indianapolis Colts and Baltimore Orioles play.
I know that this is going to be a great year at Rolling Ridge! If you need anything, I am always available. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
