Teacher, 6th Grade English

Hello Sixth Grade Writers! I am so excited to be working with you in English class this year. I am looking forward to getting to know each of you in class and through your writing.

A little bit about me: I am originally from New Jersey, but I have been in Virginia for over ten years. I still call New Jersey home, and it will always have a special place in my heart! I began my career as a paralegal, but quickly realized that my passion for writing was something I wanted to bring to the classroom. I firmly believe that each student has a story to share and that their voices are powerful.

In my time outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my family, and especially my niece, Ellery. This past spring, I became a proud dog mom to a one-and-a-half-year-old Boston Terrier/Pitbull mix named Piper. She is full of energy and helps keep me active.  You will likely see her throughout our time together.

I am an avid reader and love all different genres. Please send me your latest favorite read so I can add it to my list! I also enjoy acrylic painting, writing poetry, and decorating my home in my free time.
