Degrees and Certifications:
I teach Kindergarten at Quarles Elementary, and am in my third year of teaching. However, I worked for many years as a teaching assistant and then as a substitute before becoming a certified teacher. I received my BA from Shenandoah University in University Studies. I am a teacher consultant for the Shenandoah Valley Writing Project. Teaching is a lifelong dream, and my goal is to instill a love of learning in all of my students. I am a Winchester native and attended and graduated from Winchester Public Schools. On a more personal note, I am a wife and mother. Together my husband and I have six children. In my spare time, I love reading and watching comedies. I also love to swing dance and enjoy visiting amusement parks to ride roller coasters.
