Through daily social & emotional learning and opportunities for in-depth exploration of the curriculum, students are highly engaged in the educational process. I am a proud graduate of the Howard County Public School System! I earned my Bachelors Degree from Temple University in Philadelphia, PA and my Masters Degree and Administration certification from McDaniel College in Westminster, MD. I am currently pursuing my Doctorate degree in Educational Leadership and Professional Practice. Over the course of my career, I have served in a variety of capacities including Instructional Team Leader, Professional Development Site Liaison, and mentor teacher.
