Meet Your Teacher
Degrees and Certifications:
I have been teaching in Stafford County for 21 years. During my first eight years of teaching, I taught 5th grade at Widewater Elementary. I then transferred to Anthony Burns when it opened and also taught 5th grade for another two years. I have been a full-time Focus teacher here at Hartwood for seven years. I'm originally from Northern California but being an Army brat I also lived in Northern Italy and Northern New York. I graduated from SUNY Potsdam with a bachelors in Elementary Education and Sociology. Before becoming a FOCUS teacher I earned a certification in Gifted Education from UMW. I spend my free time being a wife, a mom, spoiling my golden retrievers and reading, reading, READING!
