Additionally, I hold an endorsement in English as a Second Language and serve as a Shenandoah Valley Writing Project Consultant and staff member through Shenandoah University. Prior to joining Loudoun County Public Schools, I taught in Shenandoah County Public Schools - serving as a kindergarten teacher, Title I Reading Specialist, and Reading Recovery teacher and Winchester Public Schools – serving as a Reading Specialist, Lead Teacher, and Division Literacy Specialist. My husband and I live in Frederick County, Virginia with our two children Michael (17) and Emma (11). In our spare time, you will find us at the baseball field or basketball courts watching our children play. We also love going to Virginia Tech football games…Go Hokies! I am super-excited about this school year and look forward to meeting you!
