I was born in Crimora, VA and moved to Winchester to begin my teaching career. Currently I am teaching 2nd grade at Quarles Elmentary. I have been teaching for 5 years, the past 4 years as a first grade teacher and now in second grade. I am enrolled at Shenandoah University to complete my masters as a Reading Specialist. I hope to inspire my students each day to enjoy learning and be the best that they can be. Spending time with my family and friends, playing softball, and reading are some things I enjoy doing.
