About Me

I CAN, therefore I teach. :) I live in Virginia Beach with my husband of 18 years, Jay, our three children, Austen, 16, (who is a Plaza IB-MYP alumnus), Hannah, 13, Lainey, 10, our 6 year old Springer Spaniel, Max, and a 6(?) year old black cat whom we call Puma that decided to adopt us as his family last summer. I have Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees from Old Dominion University, and I have also attended Virginia Tech and UVA. This is my fourteenth year teaching and my second here at Plaza Middle School. I have spent the previous six years at Ocean Lakes High School, teaching Magnet Geometry, Magnet Precalculus, Magnet Data Analysis, and Magnet Mathematical Modeling for the Mathematics and Science Academy. Before joining the staff at OL, I worked in Hampton City Schools teaching subjects ranging from life science, to reading, to various levels of mathematics. I also taught Geometry for two years at Kemps Landing Magnet School, before taking a few years off to raise my children. I achieved National Board Certification in Adolescent and Young Adult Mathematics in November of 2012. In my spare time, I enjoy running, scrapbooking, reading, crossword puzzles, and teaching online courses for the School of Professional and Continuing Studies for UVA.
