Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year! This is my 24th year teaching in Frederick County and my 18th year at Thurmont Primary School. I have taught first grade, kindergarten, and now am currently teaching 2nd grade at TPS. I received my undergraduate degree at West Chester University in Early Childhood Education. I also have taken classes towards my master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Coppin State. I live in Thurmont with my husband, two sons, and one chocolate lab. My youngest son Jacob attends Thurmont Middle School and is in 7th grade. My oldest son Michael is currently a Junior at Catoctin High School. We spend a lot of our time at the baseball field with our older son. We also enjoy camping and watching Ravens football!! I love teaching in the Thurmont community and am excited to be a partner with you this school year.
