Welcome to 2nd Grade!
I'm thrilled to be working my ninth year of teaching at Sugarland Elementary School! I spent my elementary, middle, and high school years in Fairfax County before moving on to James Madison University (GO DUKES!). I have been a teacher in Loudoun County for eight years, two years in 2nd grade teacher, six years as a 4th grade teacher, and now I'm back to 2nd! My aim as a teacher is to help mold students into responsible, moral citizens who share my love of learning!
This is sure to be a year full of fun and learning. Please don't hesitate to reach me with any questions, comments, and conversation starters!
