I am excited to be teaching third grade again at Centerville Elementary School. This will be my twenty-eighth year as an educator with Frederick County Public Schools. My teaching experience has been in third, fourth and fifth grades. Third grade is my favorite! I earned my undergraduate degree from Mount Saint Mary’s University and a master’s equivalency from Hood and McDaniel College. My husband and I live in Frederick with our youngest son. He will be a sophomore in high school this year. We also have a son attending University of Maryland College Park. Our daughter lives and works in Asheville,NC. Our oldest son lives in Frederick and works for Booz Allen. We have an adorable Golden Retriever too. We are beach bums! We spend our summers at the Cape Hatteras National Seashore, NC. We love to surf, swim, and read. We volunteer for the National Park Service as turtle nest sitters. We found amazing shells off the point on Shelly Island!
