I have been enjoying teaching in Loudoun County for 32 years. I taught 11 years at Broad Run teaching 9th grade Physical Education. I have also taught at Balls Bluff, Cool Springs, Lucketts and Leesburg Elementary Schools. The last 18 years have been here at Hillside.
In 2009, I earned my Master's Degree in Education with emphasis in Physical Education from George Mason University.
My Undergraduate Degree is Health and Physical Education NK-12 from Slippery Rock University of Pennsylvania.
I am a gymnastics coach at Loudoun County and Heritage High Schools in Leesburg.
My husband and I are proud parents of Matthew (27, a teacher at Harper Park MS) and Renay (22, a college student majoring in History Education).
More fun things to know about me:
- I am a native of Pennsylvania where I grew up on a 103 acre Dairy Farm in York Springs.
- I can milk a cow and deliver baby calves.
- I served as Adams County Dairy Princess in 1983 promoting the dairy industry.
- I was a nine year 4-H member with projects in vegetable gardening, swine (showing pigs), sewing and knitting.
- My hobbies include gardening, golfing, yard sales and thrift store shopping.
- I enjoy watching most sports - especially college football, fast pitch softball and gymnastics.
I love teaching kids about how to be fit and active and enjoy cheering for them on various sports teams.
