Welcome to Pre-Kindergarten!
We are going to have a fabulous year!!

I have been teaching for 20 years. I have taught head start colaboration, pre-kindergarten, kindergarten, first and second grade. In the morning, I work as the literacy specialist for Infants and Toddlers of Frederick County. 

I got my degree from UMd in Zoology.  I was a geneticist for University of Maryland for 5 years, so I love science! But, I decided looking through a microscope all day was not for me... so I went back to school to get my certification in Early Childhood Education, and then my masters in Reading and Literacy.

I live on a farm in Union Bridge with my wonderful husband Floyd, and 2 great kids, Ty and Mia. We are an animal loving, vegetarian family! And so...we have lots of them!! Right now we have 3 horses, 2 ponies, 2 goats, 2 sheep, 2 donkeys,9 chickens, 3 goldfish, 3 turtles, some fish, a bird, 2 dogs and 8 cats! and hopefully sometime soon....   a cow!!
