2nd Grade

 Teacher Bio

Welcome to second grade!

I am a teacher of 27 years and have taught nearly every grade from K-6th. Each grade is special in its own way, but I love 2nd grade!

To give a little background on myself, I grew up in New York just outside NYC. I received a B.S. in Journalism with a minor in Photography from the University of North Alabama and an M.T. in Elementary Education from the University of Virginia with a PK-4 and 4-8 endorsements. I am NETS*T certified and an NTTI Master Teacher which has driven my desire to use technology in the classroom as much as possible. My awards include the 1996 Virginia Teacher of the Year and the 2014 Golden Apple Teacher for Crozet. I try to use my love of photography and experiences traveling abroad in my teaching whenever possible.
I have an avid interest in science and lead STEM clubs after school and volunteer at the county wide Girls Geek Days.

When not at school I enjoy spending time with my 18 and 30 year old boys and my husband, Jim, who is also a teacher and shares my passion for teaching. We enjoy traveling, cooking, and gardening together.
