Welcome to RAMS and the 2019-2020 school year!
We are excited to have your child in our VPI/REACH combination preschool class!
This will be an exciting year filled with smiles, laughter, love, learning, fun, and growth!

This will be my 11th year at RAMS and my 12th year teaching in RCPS.
I previously taught a full day self-contained preschool class; this will be my first year teaching a combination class. I am looking forward to this new adventure!
I absolutely LOVE teaching preschool ... it builds a strong foundation for a lifetime of learning!

​My assistant is Angela Obenchain ... this will be our 9th year working together. She is instrumental in supporting my teaching and is a huge supporter of (and for) your child. We are a fantastic team and are very excited about helping your child to have a great preschool experience!

All preschool classrooms in RCPS use the Tools of the Mind curriculum. In our classroom, we will also work on goals from Individual Education Plans (IEPs) and follow the Virginia Preschool Foundation Blocks.

Please feel free to contact me ... we respond to notes sent in your child's bookbag and can also be reached by calling the school at 853-2751. You may need to leave a message but I'll call you back during rest time.
