Professional Background

10 years teaching experience for FCPS as a substitute teacher and for St. Andrew the Apostle Pre-K. Second grade assistant Catechist at Nativity Catholic Church in Burke, VA.

Faith in Action

I believe that the best example I can show my students is by truly living my faith when teaching. I strive to be the best person I can be everyday and want that to reflect on my students. I think about what I am doing for God and does it reflect in my teaching.

Favorite Teaching Moment

I love reading to my students in a group. I find that a good book keeps them engaged and my students always have very insightful questions and observations.

Favorite Food

Anything pasta related

Favorite Activity Outside of School

I enjoy cooking with my husband David. We have a lot of fun with making meals with Blue Apron as he follows the recipe and I don't. It makes for an interesting cooking experience.

Fun Fact About Me

I lived in Hawaii for three years. My most favorite place on Earth is Volcanoes National Park on the Big Island. My family was able to see an active volcano and walk across a crater.
