This will be my 20th year of teaching in Howard County. I graduated from Towson State (Now it is just called "Towson") University and have my Masters of Education from Johns Hopkins University. Although 17 of my 19 previous years were in fifth grade (two were in fourth), this will be my first year in first grade. I am looking forward to the opportunity to work with younger children. It will be a great year and a lot of learning for all of us!
I live in Columbia, Maryland (Howard County). I love movies and sports and primarily root for the Pittsburgh Steelers, Washington Capitals, and Baltimore Orioles. (Yes, I do realize those cities and teams do not fit together for most people, but they do for me.)
I enjoy landscaping. home improvements, gardening, animals (I have cats, but like all animals.), running/ exercising, pizza, BBQs, dining out, movies, the beach, Mustangs, seeing family and friends, and more.
