I am the Fourth Grade Head Teacher at New Kent Elementary School.  I graduated from The College of William and Mary in 1994 with a BA in English and Elementary Education.  I have continued my education with work towards my masters.  I have taught 1st, 2nd, and 4th grades.  My K-8 teaching certification is current.  Since I am a mother, I have extensive practice in dealing with the individual needs of children.  My children are in high school and college.  I have a creative, dramatic, and entertaining way of presenting material to students, and I develop a good rapport with them easily.  My vast experience with kids allows me to create lessons that capture their interest.  My students have been very successful in SOL Testing.  If I am not in the classroom, chances are good that I am watching my kids play ball or cheer.  However, often I am reading while waiting for their practices to end.  :)  I am committed to this community and plan to continue being a member of New Kent Schools for many years to come.  I was honored to be named "Teacher of the Year" for New Kent Elementary School as well as the New Kent County Division winner.
