Welcome to my web page! I teach 7th grade math and provide support in general education classes.
I received a Bachelor of Music Education from James Madison University, as well as completing Orff-Schulwerk certification in levels 1 and 2 at George Mason University, and Level 1 Band Instrument Repair and Steel Drum Band at Villanova University. I completed a Master of Education in Special Education from George Mason University in 2015. I attended the 2016 and 2018 JMU Content Teaching Academy for math co-teachers, as well as the VDOE ESOL and special education support.
I have worked at MCPS for 12 years providing reading support at Weems, and Special Education services at Baldwin, Osbourn, and Metz. I also work with the Osbourn athletic department at home games. Prior to MCPS, I taught kindergarten at Manassas Baptist Preschool and music in Fauquier County Public Schools.
My 4 children are Osbourn High School graduates! My daughter Rachel graduated from Sweet Briar College and my son John graduated from West Virginia University. Patrick is currently a student at Virginia Military Institute, and Kevin begins his studies at WVU. I stay active on each parent council for their schools.
