What brought you to Fluvanna?
Although I do not live in Fluvanna, I have taught here for 25 years. I was fresh out of college at the University of Virginia (I grew up in Charlottesville) and was moving to Richmond. Fluvanna offered me a job (thank goodness) and although it was a long commute, I took my first (and only) teaching position here.Tell us about your family.
I am married and have two children. My husband works at State Farm, and has met many of my students’ parents there over the years. I have a 19-year-old daughter, Cierra, who is in her second year at U.Va. She wants to become a sports psychologist. I also have a 13-year-old son, Drew. He goes to Burley Middle School and plays both soccer and basketball.What do you do for a living?
Currently I teach fourth grade at Carysbrook Elementary School. Over the years, I have taught fourth and fifth grade, and worked in a resource position.What is one of your pet peeves?
I am very impatient, which is funny because I am a teacher and would like to think I am patient with my students. But I cannot stand to wait in lines, traffic, etc. It is a running joke in our family.
