Hello to all of the wonderful families and community members of Winchester! I grew up in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley in Strasburg, Virginia. After college and getting married, I eventually returned to my hometown where I live with my husband, Todd and our three children: Cayman, Hadley and Declan. I enjoy reading, shopping and spending time with my family and friends! As a family, we enjoy watching and playing sports, being outdoors, swimming, hiking and traveling together.
After graduating from James Madison University (GO DUKES!) in 2005, I began teaching Pre-Kindergarten for Winchester Public Schools. I taught Pre-K for six years, worked as an Intervention Resource Teacher for two years, taught first grade for two years and served as a LIEP (ESOL) teacher four years. This year, I am so excited to join VACDES as the 3rd and 4th grade multi-classroom leader (MCL). In this new role, I will get to connect and support more students and teachers to form positive relationships and partnerships to better engage and empower all students in their learning. #BetterTogether
