Meet the First Grade Team!
I grew up in western Pennsylvania and moved to Northern Virginia in 1989. I graduated from Anderson University in Anderson, Indiana with a degree in elementary education. I taught Early Childhood in Arlington and Fairfax Counties before moving to Loudoun County Schools. I am very excited to return to first grade for the upcoming school year. I live in Potomac Station with my husband Adam. In my spare time I enjoy shopping, taking walks and visiting family in Pennsylvania.
I graduated from Youngstown State University with a degree in Elementary Education. My elementary teaching includes first, second, sixth and seventh grades. I live in Leesburg with my husband, Larry. My oldest son Brett lives and works in Charleston, South Carolina. My son Nathan, graduated from Radford University. He lives in Sterling, Virginia. My daughter, Lauren, graduated from Virginia Tech University and now lives in Charleston, South Carolina with her husband, Paul Shockley. Some of my favorite activities include exercising, reading, cheering for the Hokies, and visiting family in Ohio, North Carolina, and South Carolina! I am looking forward to another great year with my first graders!
I grew up in nearby Warrenton, Virginia. I graduated from James Madison University with a degree in Elementary Education and finished my graduate program at JMU with a Master of Arts in Teaching in 2007. Go Dukes! My first love is the water and I enjoy any activity that takes place at the pool or on the lake. I also enjoy traveling and spending time with my husband, my son, Landon, and friends. I am looking forward to another wonderful year with the very BeST first graders!
