Mrs. Higgins

Welcome to my web page! I provide special education support in life science and physical science. This is my 7th year at Metz as a teacher.

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 14 years providing reading support at Weems, and Special Education services at Baldwin, Osbourn, and Metz. Prior to MCPS, I taught kindergarten at Manassas Baptist Preschool and music in Fauquier County Public Schools. When not at school, you can often find me gardening, attending Manassas events, or at the Hylton Performing Arts Center.

My 4 children are Osbourn High School graduates and have gone on to college! My daughter Rachel graduated from Sweet Briar College and my son John graduated from West Virginia University. My son Patrick recently graduated from Virginia Military Institute and is currently in the NAVY, and Kevin is studying at WVU. As I did when they were in Manassas schools, I stay active with parent groups am now only on the parent council for WVU.
