Welcome to 4th grade! I am so excited for the great journey we get to have together this year.  I cannot wait to get to know more about you and your family. I absolutely love teaching! I am constantly amazed by the sweet students I have each year and how much of a difference they make in my life.  I am in my 24th year of teaching and have taught both 4th and 5th grade throughout my career.  I have two amazing daughters who bring me great joy in my life.  I have lived my whole life in Virginia and I graduated from the University of Mary Washington in Fredericksburg.  I love to spend my free time with my family and friends and go to the beach whenever I can.
