I began teaching in 2007 after completing my first M.A. degree from Hood College with at risk adolescents in a private school setting. Since that first teaching experience I have completed an additional M.A. degree from Frostburg State University and have taught at 2 private schools and 4 public schools spanning elementary age students to seniors in high school. I was born and raised in Washington County, Maryland and is an avid lover of the area, and all things crab/seafood related. Coming from a family of helpers and teachers, it has been a true blessing for me to work with children and help them to begin to realize their potential.
