Professional Background

I have been teaching children since I had my first child. I started working in Arlington Public Schools in Extended Day in 2001 and, while there, I also started substituting. In 2004 I started working in the classroom as an instructional assistant.

Personal Interests

I enjoy cooking, watching movies, spending time with family and friends. I love eating seafood and traveling. My passion is working with children just to see their faces after they have accomplished a task that they have set out to do.  It is a joy!
