All About Me

    To say that I love teaching is an understatement.  It has been my pleasure to work as an educator for 7 years.  I was an inclusion special educator for 5 years in Harford County, worked as a CIA specialist for Kennedy Krieger for 1 year and then, joined the Edgemere family three years ago as an inclusion special educator.  For the past two years I led the IGE-3 program which was a rewarding experience.  I have recently, started my administrative certificate at Loyola and have taken on a new role this year to further expand my expertise.  This year, I will wear a variety of hats that include: IEP chair, 1st grade Math, and 3rd grade Math teacher.

    I graduated from Towson University with a major in Sociology and minor in Anthropology.  I returned to school shortly after graduation to receive my Masters in Education.  I have certification in Early Childhood, Elementary Education, and Special Education.

    I have a very supportive and inspiring family.  My two younger children Lennon and Grace attend Edgemere and my oldest Dylan is a senior at Kenwood. My husband, Jim loves to visit on his days off and help in the classroom.  They are all part of my think tank for "classroom adventures."

    Some of personal interest include recycled art and painting.  I love visiting art museums and going to festivals to gather ideas.  I also enjoy Yoga, Pilates, hiking, and running.  I enjoy gardening and spoiling my pets.  I have two dogs, a rabbit, three fish, and a pig.

"As a teacher, my goal is to make every experience authentic and purposeful in order to foster a love for learning."
