We’re welcoming back another face that might be familiar to many! Our new middle-school language arts and 7th-grade religion teacher, a Maryland native, has a BA in Education from the College of Notre Dame of MD and an MS in Educational Counseling from McDaniel College. She loves teaching because it gives her the opportunity to be creative and inspire students, and to witness her students’ growth. Married to Brian for the past ten years, she has a son (Ben) and daughter (Cassie) at home, along with cats, Bean and Autumn, and dog, Olive. She’s a bit of a renaissance woman, enjoying creative pursuits like reading, writing, and painting, as well as playing tennis.
