A Note from the WCES Reading Deparement:
Dear WCES Families,
The WCES Reading Department misses you and hopes you are doing well (and reading some great books!). Please use the "Department Overview" link for contact information should you need to reach the Reading Department during this time of online learning.
I am looking forward to a wonderful year! This will be my 21st year teaching here at "The Creek" and during my time here, I have taught first, second, and fourth grade. Currently, I have the privilege of serving as Winding Creek's Literacy Specialist. I am originally from Huron, Ohio (right on Lake Erie) but have lived in Virginia since 1999. I attended Bowling Green State University for my undergraduate studies and earned a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education. I earned my master's degree in education with a Literacy Specialist endorsement from the Univeristy of Mary Washington. My husband and I both work for Stafford County Schools and are the proud parents of two children, both of whom attended WCES. Our daughter Helena is a freshman at Colonial Forge High School and our son Cameron is in 8th grade at Rodney Thompson Middle School. We also have 2 fur babies: Charlie (our 7 year old goldendoodle) and Squeaky (our 10 year old cat). In addition to everything I love about working with children and working here at WCES, my family and I also enjoy kayaking and spending time at the beach. We're also frequently found at the volleyball court cheering for Helena and at various long distance races cheering for Cameron.
