“I believe all children have innate curiosity, willful imagination and aspiration to learn. It is the responsibility of the educator to find the motivation that drives that process by positive mentoring and befitting the catalyst in the chain reaction. Each child is unique and has the penchant to shine within the educational system, if given the opportunity.” KRS
I'm a graduate of the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, where I received my teaching degree in 2009. I have a BS degree in chemistry from Western Carolina University plus graduate work in chemistry at Wake Forest University. I have worked in the corporate world as a scientist for more than 25 years at companies such as Glaxo SmithKline, USDA, ICI Americas, Wellman, Inc. just to name a few. I enjoy bringing 21st Century skills to my teaching activities and look forward to sharing many scientific discoveries with my students.

I'm a proud mom of a daughter in college in NC and my son who attends Manassas Park Elementary. My daughter graduated as a Charlotte Mecklenburg School Scholar, a North Carolina Scholar, 10 additional honors along with an International Languages Scholar award when she proudly walked across the stage in 2010. She is dedicated to making a positive difference in this world as she studies sustainability and product development, international business-environmental affairs and languages at ASU. My daughter works 30 hours a week supporting herself fully along with taking a full academic load...high honors too boot!!! My son has a natural curiosity for learning anything and everything these days...oh, the questions he asks me and his teachers ..lol. He keeps everyone on their toes!!!
I'm very proud of my children and as single mom, I know it takes a village to raise kids these days...I'm proud to be part of my children's lives, both my own kids and my kids in my class room...they bring me such joy daily!!!
I have been in and out of the educational system since 1997, both private and public, employee and volunteer, served on many successful school committees over the years...lending a hand where needed...to many to list here...lol, served as a mentor for the "Gangs of One" program, built 5 houses with the Habitat For Humanity program in Charlotte, North Carolina and look forward to serving Prince William County in similiar capacities. I play USTA 4.5 Level competitive tennis, cycle on my Trek 510 Sport & Motobecane bikes, love to cook and garden and of course...football season in the fall and tennis in the spring.
It is my pleasure serving the needs and teaching your child this year at Fred Lynn Middle School. I am dedicated to making our youth stronger in mind, body and soul...responsible/accountable leaders for generations to follow. I couldn't have a better job...I absolutely love what I do and what rich experiences I can share with my students.
