Hi Panda Family,
I am looking forward to a great school year. I love teaching second grade and second graders! It's such a great age and I am honored to be a part of your child's educational journey. I have been a proud Panda teacher for several years and my family is happy to be a part of the Winchester community. My husband, Rick, also works for WPS. We have 3 grown children; which is so hard to believe! Education is a priority in our family and all 3 are recent college graduates. Our oldest, Ben, is a 2019 graduate of Princeton University. He currently lives and works in New York City. He plans to attend law school, but the pandemic has put a hold on when and where. Our twins, Caroline and Adam, graduated with their bachelor's degrees this past spring. Caroline is a graduate of Virginia Commonwealth University. She is taking this year off to work in a local nursing home and for Americorps. She plans to attend graduate school to become a geriatric therapist. Adam graduated from Shepherd University where he plays baseball. He also played for the Winchester Royals this past summer. He will begin working on his MBA at Shepherd where he still has one more year of baseball eligibility. We're very proud of our children and their accomplishments. We believe education changes lives and creates a strong foundation for anything you wish to pursue. I wish to instill this belief and confidence in the children I have the privilege of having in my classroom! As empty-nesters, a lot of love and devotion is given to our two pugs, Bruno and Lucy. The students will hear a lot about them this year! I plan on getting to know all about the families, hobbies, and passions of all of my students, as well!
