Faculty & Staff
I have an undergraduate degree in Anthropology and havealways been interested in education. I started out developing courses for adults at the Internal Revenue Service before my love of children's literature and folklore set me on a path to a Masters in Education with a focus on Early Childhood. It was then I began teaching preschool. I went from teaching adults to 3 year olds and then spent over fifteen years in a pre-K 4/5 year old class. I have now come full circle-- teaching adults interested in teaching children.
I am currently teaching full time at the Country Day School in McLean. My special interests are developing oral language skills, and arts- based curricula.

I graduated with my BS in Elementary Education with a concentration in Early Childhood from Indiana University of Pennsylvania. Then I received my Masters in Elementary Education with a concentration in Early Childhood from Shippensburg University in Pennsylvania. I love working with early childhood children, especially preschoolers. I also love working with adults, which is why I enjoy teaching at NOVA.
I have been an adjunct faculty member in the Early Childhood Department since 2004.
In my free time, I enjoy family time with my husband and two children, reading and traveling.
I received my B.S. In Education at Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana in 1987 and other than spending several years at home after the birth of my children, I have never ventured far from the classroom. I enjoy working with and teaching all ages, from our littlest preschoolers to adult learners.
