Fifth grade is truly an exciting and momentous year, and I am looking forward to making it a very successful one! I will be teaching everything but math, where I too love making learning relevant and fun.
I hold an AA from Montgomery College, MD, a BA in graphic design as well as a teaching certification from the University of Maryland, and finally, obtained my Master's degree from Shenandoah University as a reading specialist. During the past twenty years, I have taught grades one through eight. This is my 17th year teaching at Cool Spring. Finally, I am the science contact for our school and have helped build the STEM summer camp for the last seven years.
On a personal note, I live in Leesburg with my husband, two children, four step-children, and our dog Sully and our two kittens Chaos and Control...no, Utah and Jet. I enjoy gardening, going out to dinner(a lot), camping (at the beach), shopping, triathlon's, reading, and anything having to do with the beach.
Let's make this a great year together!
