5th Grade

I am so happy to be your child's 3rd grade teacher.   This is my 3rd full year at DCES. I began as a long term substitute in 4th grade, taught 2 years in second grade, and am now looking forward to the adventure of 3rd grade. I previously worked in Montgomery County Public Schools.  While working for MCPS, I earned my Master's in Education in Curriculum and Instruction.  After seven years of working I made the decision to stay home and have been working and playing with my 3 children full time for the past 6 years.  Now excitedly, my own three children and I have found our home at DCES.  
I am a busy teacher and mom and would not have it any other way!  I am an active person.  I am often found, running, jumping on our trampoline, and I have even trained in karate. I am also quite vocal about my love of football! When my energy is gone I love to relax and READ!  My favorite place to read...THE BEACH of course.  I hope you all enjoy grabbing a book and pretending to be at the beach in our beach inspired classroom.  We are going to have a stellar year of learning and growing.  Parents, please know that I available for questions/comments and look forward to working with your child as well as you to make this year a successful one!
