My Story

I was born and raised in Fairfield County, Connecticut. I obtained my bachelor’s in Human Development from Howard University before going on to get my masters in elementary education. I started my teaching career teaching first grade for Arlington Public Schools. I’ve loved working with kids ever since I basically was one! I’ve been a camp counselor, babysat, and tutored. Working with kids and helping them foster a love of learning has always been my passion. I believe in fostering the whole child and that the social emotional aspect of school is just as important as learning information.
