Why did you become a teacher?
I’ve always loved children and there’s nothing more magical than seeing children reach their goals and make meaningful connections.

What is your favorite quote?
“Believe you can and you’re half way there” ~Theodore Roosevelt

I was born and raised in Ohio, but Maryland has been home for the past 32 years. I’m a wife and mother that enjoys reading, kayaking, traveling, and spending time with family and friends. My favorite place is Maine and I absolutely love the beach. I taught preschool for many years and have spent the past two years as a paraprofessional in a special education preschool classroom.
