"I truly believe that all people are lifelong learners and I am eager to learn with and from the students at The Potomac School."
As I begin this journey as a teaching fellow at Potomac, I am constantly reminded of the wonderful experiences that I have had working with children. One of the things that I love most about teaching young children is the way that the students are able to express their understanding and curiosity in different ways. I truly believe that all people are lifelong learners and I am eager to learn with and from the students at The Potomac School.
I grew up in a small town in Maryland as one of six siblings and love spending time with my family and friends. I graduated from The Ohio State University where I received a Bachelor of Science in Early Childhood Education. During my time at Ohio State, I played on the varsity women’s lacrosse team and was a team captain in my final season. I have been coaching girls lacrosse for several years and I am looking forward to continuing this part of my life as a coach at Potomac!
