I was raised on a farm in Rappahannock County, Virginia, about 60 miles south of Washington DC. I spent a large part of my childhood playing piano, singing, playing sports, and running through the Blue Ridge mountains. After high school, I lived in France for three months, gaining a great appreciation for the beauty of other cultures and peoples. I studied music & French at Radford University and teaching middle school math & science at Old Dominion University. After teaching at public & private schools in Virginia, I moved to Oregon and received my Masters in Special Education from UO in 2008. GO DUCKS! I currently serve three 4J schools in a variety of roles, all involving teaching & supporting emerging learners. I love figuring out how a student learns and designing instruction to best fit that learning style. Through teaching, I learn something new everyday- my favorite perk of the job!! My hobbies include batiking, quilting, songwriting, gardening, and hiking with my Mastiffs in the spectacular Oregon countryside. I love being part of the Buena Vista Family!!!
