I am a Frederick native and grew up in Urbana. I have been teaching since 2005 after finishing my undergrad degree in Early Childhood Education from the University of Maryland in College Park. I later completed my Masters degree in Reading Specialization from Hood College in 2011. I spent many years in kindergarten, 2nd, and 3rd grade before joining the reading team in 2017. I love watching students learn to read and find a good book to get lost in! My husband Sam and I live in Urbana with our 2 children, James and Delilah, and our 2 cats, Sean Taylor and Oshie. Looking forward to an awesome year!
