EL Department Chair

About Me

I enjoy teaching students from all over the world, including the United States. I earned my BA in French and Spanish from Villanova University, then taught middle school students in for six years. After obtaining a MA in ESOL/Bilingualism from the University of Maryland, I went on to teach elementary EL students in Baltimore City. I have been teaching English Language Learners at the high school level since moving to Loudoun County in 2000. I am a wife, and mother of three, and I love teaching!
