I was born and grew up in Somerset County. I am a graduate of Washington High School. My teaching career began in 1996. I have been a teacher at Washington High School, Westover 6-7, Woodson Middle School, Woodson Elementary School, and Greenwood Elementary School. I love to spend time with my family either at our home in Princess Anne or at our camper on Chincoteague Island! I have two married children--- a daughter and a son, and two grand children, Claire and Luke, who call me "Nana." My hobbies include reading, gardening, and doing crafts. I am currently teaching myself to crochet!
