 Learn More About Me!
I have taught kindergarten, first, and second grade in Prince William County Schools for the past ten years.  I'm very excited to begin my eleventh year in the school division and my eighth year at Marshall Elementary!  I'm especially THRILLED to teach full-day kindergarten!!

I grew up in Pocono Lake in northeastern Pennsylvania.  I guess my love of science and exploring nature grew out of living in the Pocono Mountains with my parents and two brothers! 

I obtained my Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Education and Elementary Education from Bloomsburg University in Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania.  I received my Master's Degree from the IET (Initiatives in Educational Transformation) program at George Mason University

My husband Jeff and I have a fun and lively three-year old daughter. We live in Manassas and have two cats, Smokey and Leo.  In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family, designing this website, going out to the movies, and playing board games.

 Teaching Philosophy

When provided with respect and encouragement, all children can succeed when guided to appropriate learning goals.  My students know they are valued members of a classroom community where they are given numerous opportunities to flourish.          

I understand the importance of compassion and consistent patience when fostering a caring, learning environment.  My classroom is an exciting place, filled with enthusiasm and laughter, highlighted with kindness and understanding, and built on a foundation of mutual trust.
