Hello! I am so happy to be teaching 2nd grade for the 10th year! I love teaching the best grade! I love this grade and I love teaching seven and eight year olds! Teaching is my passion and I enjoy finding new ways to help my students succeed.  I love seeing their faces when they achieve success in learning.  I love to teach inquiry based lessons and enjoy IB so much! I have been teaching for 26 years and I have taught in Texas, Delaware and Pennsylvania. I moved to Virginia with my husband in 2004.  I am a mom of an awesome twelve year old named Sophia.  She enjoys books, chorus, and Tao Kwon Do, and playing outside. 
 I am originally from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and I attended the University of Pittsburgh for undergrad and the School of Education, graduate school. I love all sports teams from Pittsburgh! Let's go Pens, Steelers, and Bucs! I love the Pitt Panthers, too.  I know that this year is going to be a great year of learning! :)
