I have taught second, third and fourth grades, as well as middle school for the past seven years in Virginia.
I absolutely love tapping into the learning styles of all students through the use of interactive notebooks, organizers and activities that are engaging! I am always searching for new ideas and strategies that present academic and behavioral concepts to my students in unique opportunities.
2019 - 2020 Chesapeake Public Schools Middle School Teacher of the Year
I graduated from Virginia Wesleyan College in 2011 with a Bachelors Degree in Interdisciplinary Studies and from Regent University in 2012 with a Masters Degree in Special Education. I am currently completing a program for the Reading Specialist endorsement at Regent University.
Originally from Hatboro, Pennsylvania, I found my heart in Virginia after serving seven years in the Navy as a Military Police Officer. I met my wonderful husband and together we have two beautiful children. I have taught second, third and fourth grade students, as well as middle school students with disabilities (Autism, Emotional Disabilities, Learning Disabilities).
