I am very excited that you will be learning with me this year! This is my 16th year teaching fifth grade at TJES! I will be teaching science to the whole fifth grade this year. We are going to have a great year together! I can't wait to learn all about you, but first let me tell you a little about me! I was born in Baltimore, Maryland and raised in Carroll County, Maryland. When I was in high school we moved to Baltimore County, Maryland. I went to Sacred Heart School in Glyndon, Maryland for kindergarten through 8th grade. Then, I went to Mercy High School in Baltimore City for high school. My high school was all girls! I attended Lynchburg College from 2000-2004 and received my degree in Human Development and Learning. I met my husband right before graduation, so I was very excited that I was offered a job at TJES after graduation!
My husband's name is Alan. He is an insurance broker and loves soccer! He is on the board for Central Virginia United. We have cute, energetic little boys! Oliver is 6 and in Kindergarten and Charlie is 4 and in preschool. They both love to learn! I spend most of my time with my family. The boys keep us very busy. They both play soccer, basketball, and tball. Alan coaches all their teams! If I have some free time, I love to curl up with a good book!
See you at Open House on August 9th! PLEASE BRING ALL YOUR SUPPLIES TO OPEN HOUSE. You will put all your supplies in the correct locations at open house, so we can have some time for FUN activities on the first day of school!
