I am a proud Towson Tiger! I have a bachelor’s degree and a master’s degree in early childhood education from Towson University.
This is my ninth year as a Parkway Panda. In addition to teaching kindergarten, I also taught 3rd grade for three years. I've taught a before-school group of 4th and 5th graders where our focus was on math and problem solving strategies.
I married my college sweetheart in November 2017. We love to travel- we've enjoyed countless day trips, roadtripped from San Diego to San Francisco, honeymooned in Paris, Bruges, and London, and are excitedly planning our next adventure! Our son was born in August 2019. He's an active toddler and the light of my life!
In addition to spending as much time with my husband, our son, and our families as possible, I am a voracious reader. I love thrillers and suspense. Some of my favorite authors are Jodi Picoult, Faye Kellerman, and Gillian Flynn. Some of my favorite children's authors include J.K. Rowling, Roald Dahl, Patricia Polacco, and Jacqueline Woodson.
I also absolutely love teaching! It is my mission to instill a love for reading and learning in my students so that they develop a desire to become lifelong learners.
