“Creating an environment in which learning is possible; that’s what home is.” Mary Catherine Bateson
I am incredibly grateful for the opportunities of this school year. I have prepared the classroom for the amazing children who make it their school home. Each of them will have the opportunity to be scientists, engineers, readers, writers, artists, performers mathematicians, and researchers. We will use our imaginations and curiosities to point us toward our dreams and we will build the stamina and work habits to propel us towards those goals.
I have been teaching for 18 years. Before arriving in Winchester 8 years ago, I taught in New Hampshire and Georgia. I’ve taught Pre-school, Kindergarten, First, Second, and Fourth. I am a Teacher Consultant for the National Writing Project and find great joy working with young writers. I am a trained Montessori Teacher and Responsive Classroom Teacher. I am currently working on my Masters through Shenandoah University with an emphasis on Literacy and Gifted Education. When I am not in the classroom you might find me at the Winchester Little Theater pursuing my love of the Arts through acting or directing.
