I began my teaching career in 2003 as a special education teacher for Westmoreland County Public Schools. I came to Isle of Wight County Schools in 2005 and worked here until 2013. I have also worked in Newport News and Hampton before my return to Isle of Wight County this year. I graduated from Christopher Newport University with a Bachelor of Science in Fitness Management and continued my education at Old Dominion University where I obtained my Master's Degree in Special Education. I am currently a Special Education Teacher for 7th and 8th-grade students and I am so excited to be back at Smithfield Middle School.
