About Me

Hi! This is my second year here at Keister Elementary, but it is my 12th year of teaching. I am so excited to be a part of this dynamic community of learners. 

I am from southern Virginia, however, I have lived in the Shenandoah Valley for 15 years. I am married and I have two sons. As a family, we love to be outside, read books, play board games, and travel. 

I graduated from Virginia Tech in 1997 and from JMU in 2003. I have taught in both Virginia and North Carolina. After teaching for ten years, I spent some time at home with my two sons. I am a lifelong learner; I love to study languages and read about different places and cultures.

I look forward to an exciting year in first grade!
