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

My favorite moment was when one of my students asked me if my mommy made me lunch and dinner. I explained that I am a mommy and make my own meals. She was concerned about me. .

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 and got to see an active volcano on the Big Island of Hawaii with my husband and two sons.
