Degrees and Certifications:
I began teaching at Barley Sheaf in 2007. Prior to that, I taught 2nd grade for two years in Chesapeake, Virginia. I also taught 3rd grade for one year at Copper Hill before becoming a Sheafer! I have a B.S. in Early Childhood Education and an M.A. in Teaching and Learning from Virginia Tech! Go Hokies!
I developed my love of reading in elementary school and I hope to be able to encourage the same in my students. I am currently part of the Literacy Support team. I work with a variety of grade levels, pulling out small groups of students for supplemental help and also pushing-in to classrooms to provide additional support during Reading Workshop.
I live in Flemington with my husband Keith and two children, Jacob and Chloe. We also have one furbaby named Maya. When I am not teaching, I like to spend time with my friends and family!
