I am a second grade teacher at Patrick Henry Elementary. I have over a dozen years of teaching experience, majority of which have been in second grade. It is such a fun year to teach as the students are excited to be there and share their lives. I believe that parents and teachers must work collectively to support the academic, social and emotional development of each child. One of the many reasons I love teaching is because, together, we can help your child reach his or her greatest potential. My goal is to have our classroom be a place where students feel that they are part of a team. I want them to respect each other, take risks, learn from their mistakes, try their best, and celebrate each other’s success.
I am a California native, and although I still love to visit my parents, siblings, and friends in California, I truly enjoy all that the DC/Northern Virginia area has to offer. I am married with two children, and we try to take advantage of everything from the beautiful mountains to the the fabulous museums and historic sites in our area. I enjoy doing various outdoor activities with my family, such as hiking and playing sports. I also insist on finishing my day with a good book!
