"I love children’s books and enjoy watching as books open new experiences and magical worlds for students."
I have always wanted to teach and inspire children. After receiving my bachelor's degree in elementary education from Bucknell University, I began teaching fourth grade near my hometown in southern New Jersey.
While teaching, I completed my master's degree in educational leadership at the University of Pennsylvania. My family moved to Massachusetts, where I was the director of curriculum and instruction. Two years ago, my husband and our daughters, Grace and Madeline, settled into Ashburn, VA, where I taught third grade in Loudoun County.
Now, I am thrilled to be joining The Potomac School as a third grade teacher! I love children’s books and enjoy watching as books open new experiences and magical worlds for students. Outside of school, you can find me crafting, baking, practicing Pilates, reading, and traveling.
