This is currently my 11th year of teaching. I began my teaching career in the middle school teaching sixth grade mathematics at Signal Knob Middle School in Shenandoah County. After five years there, I transitioned into the elementary classroom here in Winchester City. I spent four years teaching in a fourth grade classroom and am now in my second year teaching third grade!
I enjoy teaching students to have a love of reading for life and this year I am incorporating STEM lessons through reading and class read aloud novels. I also enjoy teaching science and social studies, again with an emphasis on STEM and STEAM projects!
I grew up in Pennsylvania and love anything to do with Pittsubrgh sports. In my free time I enjoy sewing (I also teach the Sensational Sewing enrichment club at school), scrapbooking and DIY projects. On the side, I also take photographs of people and families for special events in their lives. I am a huge Harry Potter fan and even have my classroom set up with a Harry Potter theme.
