Welcome to Room 26.
Being a teacher is the career path I had never planned to take. I am so happy I veered from my original plan. This year begins my 14th year at Christa McAuliffe. My husband and I are originally from Michigan. Through a series of career choices and relocation, we were fortunate enough to find Northern Virginia in 1993. Our children are graduates of PWCS and both my husband and I believe in this area, and in this community.
In our classroom we have created a second family where we support, encourage and challenge one another daily. Our school day is designed to meet the individual needs of each student while working together as a team. The success of one is the success of all, and the struggles are, as well.
I come to school each day to teach your child and I end up learning so much more from them. I am honored to have the opportunity to teach your child and work with you to plan their future. Together we will create the framework for your child’s success for a lifetime. I hope you treasure the journey as much as I do.
