I taught for Loudoun County Public Schools in Virginia for three years with experience in kindergarten and second grade. After moving to California in 2014 I spent time as an assistant teacher in preschool, first, and again in second grade. Most recently my family moved to San Diego and I'm excited to start as an EAK (early admitting kindergarten) teacher in January!
I love learning new approaches to teaching and rely a lot on the influences of other great teachers around me. I am known to be very structured with my class, but believe in student choice and learning through active exploration.

Received my bachelors and masters degree in Elementary Education at George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia.
I am a Virginia native making a living in sunny California with my husband and doxie, Murphy. Our household grew by one in the spring of 2014.
