I am one of the third grade resource teachers at Barrett and have worked with students in grades 2 – 5 since 2001. I received my bachelors in Psychology and Economics from the University of Maryland and then went on to graduate school for a teaching degree, receiving my masters in teaching in 1997 from Goucher College. Go Gophers! I spent my first four years teaching at Garfield Elem. in Fairfax working with students in grades three through six. Then came the day when I saw a job posting at Barrett and I was excited to work in my own backyard. Since that day I have loved working with Barrett’s diverse and warm community. I recently completed a second masters program in School Administration and hope to put my degree to work expanding our school’s collaborative culture to respond to the needs of all students. I enjoy reading both fiction and nonfiction books about similar subject matter to gain a deeper understanding, learning anything of interest and teaching anyone who’s willing to listen.
