I am an educator! I have taught in Title I, low income schools for almost my entire teaching career. I love a challenge and find that making children believe they can learn is half the battle. I was honored as Chesterfield County Elementary Teacher of the Year by my peers who see my never-ending passion for student success, especially in Math! I start each day telling myself, "It's all about the kids!"
I am a runner! I have completed 27 marathons to date, two Ragnars and one Tri. Yes, I love running. It clears my mind and while running those longer distances I find I have some of my most creative ideas!
I am with Greater Richmond Fit4Kids http://grfit4kids.org/ now and I have the fantastic opportunity to meld my two passions: academics and running! I was honored to be asked by Sports Backers to captain the fundraising team for Kids Run RVA. I see first-hand how being successful at running can also make you successful in school. Kids need a reason to want to come to school and sometimes the run club is it! I have the privilege of building relationships with kids outside the classroom and seeing the success in the classroom!
If you ever want to see me teaching an "ACTIVE LESSON" or help with running...please let me know! I do this for all the educators that work tirelessly for their children and I do it for the children so they "love" themselves!
