Welcome to First Grade! I am excited to be working with your child this year! I am beginning my 22nd year of teaching at Occoquan Elementary. I began teaching students with Learning Disabilities, and then moved to fourth and fifth grade for the majority of my career. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work with younger students as well! I am the mother of three wonderful children, and have a four-year-old grandson who I love to spend time with! In my spare time, I like to cook, quilt, and read good books. I look forward to getting to know each of you throughout the year!
