I knew Valley School was a perfect fit for me the first time I walked down the winding, path to the front door. A Mount Pleasant native, I recently moved from rural Virginia to the Ligonier area to join the Valley School team as a second-grade teacher.
My parents were both school teachers, so after raising my three children, I naturally gravitated towards education. Over the course of ten years at Verna Montessori School, I gained valuable experience teaching first-, second-, and third-grade students. I deepened my knowledge of the whole-child approach to teaching. I now look forward to blending my knowledge and experiences from private and public-school environments to benefit the students at Valley.
My love for flowers has me in my garden whenever possible. I am so grateful for Valley School’s natural surroundings, and look forward to opportunities to connect our curriculum with outdoor learning.
