I am thrilled to be starting my fifth year at Lovettsville after teaching 3 years at Forest Grove Elementary in Sterling. I am loving 4th grade!! Before moving to LoudounCounty, I taught 6 years in my home state, New York. I graduated from SUNY Geneseo. Living here in Virginia with my husband, daughter, and Akita pup Sabre is quite an adventure. My favorite hobby is studying the Civil War, and I do some volunteer work as a tour guide at Ball's Bluff Battlefield whenever I can. I am currently the secretary of the Friends of the Ball's Bluff Battlefield organization. I also spend much of my spare time on the soccer and softball fields!
