I have been a cougar almost all my life. I have attended Calvert since Kindergarten until I graduated 1995. So excited to be back and now working on staff as a teacher. I am also a proud cougar parent of two lovely kids. My passion has always been teaching, even though I was not aware of it when I graduated, but have unconsciously been teaching during my whole life. During my spare time I like dance and spend time with my family and friends. My heart is always at my second home (school) with my other 22 kids whom I learn from every day and adore.
