I have been a teacher with DC Public Schools for the past nine years, teaching Pre-K 3, Pre-K 4 and Kindergarten. I was rated highly effective for seven consecutive years and reached the highest rung on the evaluation ladder: "expert teacher". I have a bachelors degree in early childhood education and a masters in curriculum and instruction with a concentration in reading instruction and intervention. I served on many committees and enjoy keeping up with the latest research. Other passions include writing, reading, baking, barre, traveling, and attending concerts! I am also learning ASL.
