A little about me...

I was raised in the Appalachian Mountains of Maryland, along the Youghiogheny River.  Teaching is my passion, along with nature, science, art, and writing. These passions have provided me the wonderful opportunity in life to be an educator. I have been an educator for 19 years, and still enjoy the field as much today as I did my first year. I graduated from Frostburg State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education. I then obtained a Master’s Degree in Education from there as well. STEM: Science, Technology, Engineering, & Mathematics are passions of mine as well. I have valued experience in the classroom in this field and enjoyed leading a STEM Robotics Team for many years. I feel at home in the Science Lab here at Taylor Ranch Elementary School and look forward to working with all of your children this year.
