TEACHING EXPERIENCE

For my first two years, I taught fourth grade in Bedford County, Virginia. During that time, I taught writing, reading, and math. This past year, I started teaching second grade in a self-contained class. Along with teaching, I also have a passion for writing for children. I have written and published three middle grade/young adult novels (two of which are historical fiction), as well as three children's picture books. I am also currently working with illustrators to complete and publish three additional children's picture books.
