I am a third grade teacher at Carrollton Elementary School. I began working in Isle of Wight County Schools starting the 2016-2017 school year. I earned my undergraduate degree from the University of Scranton (PA) and my Master of Arts in Education degree from Loyola Marymount University (CA). Currently, I am in school for administration and leadership. Previously, I worked for the House of Representatives and a "Big 5" public relations firm handling political grassroots issue campaigns. I joined Teach For America in 2000 and was placed in Compton, California and taught there for eight years. Locally, I taught in Newport News and Suffolk Public Schools prior to joining Carrollton Elementary.
