Role
I want to institute a love of learning so that my students adore being in school.  It is my hope they will leave my class every day with a smile!  My students will practice essential social skills to prepare them for their future as a student and in life.  Together, we learn how to embrace our unique differences and work together to build a safe and happy community. It is so important for these children to know their worth and their potential to succeed.  I strive to build confidence in my class through implementation of daily rules, routines, academics, and purposeful play.

Background
I graduated Magna Cum Laude from George Mason University in December 2015.  My Master’s degree is in Early Childhood Education, Pre-K-3rd grade.  I have an additional Early Childhood Education certificate and licensure in the state of VA.  I absolutely love children and worked as a nanny while finishing my graduate studies.  I remain close with many of the families in the Arlington community.  I have worked in several pre-kindergarten rooms as a substitute with Fairfax County Public Schools, also while I finished my graduate degree.  After graduation, I worked at a private preschool in Arlington.

Personal Interests
I love to read, listen to music, and attend live concerts. I have a passion for nature and enjoy hiking and camping.  I also love to cook and bake. Cupcakes are my specialty! Most of all, of course, teaching our youngest learners!

Literacy Connection
My favorite authors are Dr. Seuss and Eric Carle.
