I earned my Bachelor of Arts in Early Childhood Psychology from Christopher Newport University. I received a teaching license in Exceptional Education: General Curriculum from Virginia Commonwealth University. I earned my Masters of Administration and Educational Leadership from Old Dominion University.
This is the beginning of my 13th year at Varina High School where I was an Exceptional Education/English teacher for the first 10 years. I am now going into my 3rd year as the Administrative Intern.
Education and Leadership Philosophy:
As a teacher, my mission was to make sure that all of my students saw the value in their own lives and in their own education. I wanted to teach them the tools they needed to be successful not only in and out of school but beyond. As an instructional leader, I am now challenging staff and students to see their hidden potential. In connection with Varina HS’s mission statement, I encourage all staff and students to display quality character through their relationships, their commitment to the community of the school, and to the trust they have to be the best version of themselves.
