I am excited to be the reading specialist for Aldie Elementary! You will find me to be passionate about all things related to reading and I love supporting students, staff, and families in reading instruction. This is my tenth year teaching in Loudoun County Public Schools. Prior to becoming a reading specialist, I taught first grade and preschool. I hold a bachelors degree in Human Development with a concentration in Early Childhood Education and a Masters in Curriculum and Instruction from Virginia Tech. GO HOKIES! My second Masters degree is in Reading from Shenandoah University. I live in Ashburn with my wonderful husband, John, my daughters, Charlotte & Lila, and my two Golden Retrievers, Lily & Daisy. I look forward to a fantastic school year!
