Welcome to Upper Elementary!
Thank you for visiting our web page! Upper Elementary Montessori is an exciting place to be. I am looking forward to working with your children this year.
I earned my bachelor's degree in Psychology and Sociology from James Madison University, my Elementary and Early Childhood certifications from the University of Richmond, and my Master of Education in Reading and Literacy from Benedictine University. I completed training in both upper and lower elementary Montessori curricula from the Seacoast Center for Education. This is my fifth year at Hursey and I am very blessed to be a part of this family! We are stronger together!

Please visit the links below under Resources for Montessori parent resources. There are also links for your child to practice math skills, build reading comprehension and fluency, and explore science assignments.
I am from Virginia.
I was the first Upper Elementary Montessori teacher at Hursey.
My favorite color is purple.
I am married and have two sons, Ben and Tyler.
I have two four-legged children, my dogs, Maddie and Murphy.
I love M&Ms, Oreos, dark chocolate, and ice cream.
“Education is a natural process carried out by the human individual, and is acquired not by listening to words, but by experiences in the environment.”
