I am honored to serve as the Principal at Matoaca Elementary. It is my belief that learning is not contained within the four walls of our school but it is continually occurring in a child’s life, in school and within their community. There will be volunteer opportunities, family nights, curriculum nights, PTA functions, and more. Through our partnership, students are provided the best education needed to be successful.
I have a Masters in Education from Marymount University and an Education Specialist Degree in Education Leadership and Policy Studies from Virginia Tech. I grew up in Chesterfield and am a product of Chesterfield County Public Schools. I began my teaching career in Henderson, NV before moving back to Chesterfield, where I taught kindergarten and first grade at Hening Elementary and Spring Run Elementary. Then I had the opportunity to return to Hening Elementary as the Title 1 reading teacher for grades K-5.
My husband, Brian, and I live in Chesterfield. I have three adult children, Brandon, Haley and Aaron. I have a spunky and sweet granddaughter, Willow, who I love spoiling!! My other baby is a fur baby, Oakley, and she is a Labrador puppy. I love to spend time reading a good book and cheering on the Hokies!!
Please feel free to email me at [email protected] or call me if I can assist you with anything.
I am really looking forward to continuing to work with the students, staff, and families of Matoaca Elementary. It’s going to be a great year! 5 Tribes…1 Village
