It is always exciting to begin another school year. I will be working with students as a Targeted Intervention Teacher. This is my 21st year in education with FCPS,working at Ballenger Creek Elementary and Orchard Grove Elementary before coming to Whittier five years ago. My experience includes being a special education instructional assistant, teaching third grade, and as a Targeted Intervention Teacher.
I am married and have two adult cildren. When not at school, I love to garden, cook, and spend time with my family, especially travelling to Disney World, the mountains of Tennessee, and the beaches of New Jersey.
I attended the University of Mary Washington earning a degree in biology. I earned my graduate degree in education and my reading specialist certification from Mount Saint Mary's University. I have written curriculum for FCPS.
I love helping children become better readers and encouraging them to discover all that can be learned through reading.
This will be another busy year for students, staff, and families at Whittier!
