What is your teaching philosophy?
My philosophy is to encourage kids to discover their surroundings. There’s something new to learn everyday and the excitement behind that is something I want them to see firsthand. I personally love traveling a lot, and I enjoy going to museums and the feeling of seeing and exploring new places is such a great feeling!

Though born in Ohio, I come from upstate New York where I attended the State University of NY and received my degrees in Interdisciplinary Studies and Liberal Arts/Educational Studies. I have spent many years dedicating my life to working in special needs education, supporting at-risk youth, and serving as a teaching associate. Since moving to Maryland, I have enjoyed exploring D.C. with my children and grandchildren seeing all that it has to offer! I look forward to visiting the rest of the museums and finding the best hiking spots the DMV has in store.
