I am an avid learner who is thrilled with new opportunities to learn and engage in the world. I earned a B.A. in English and a B.S. in Elementary Education at the University of Maryland, College Park. I earned an M.Ed. in Educational Leadership from Regent University in Virginia, and a Ph.D. in Curriculum Theory and Instruction at the University of Maryland, College Park. I began my teaching career as an elementary school teacher in Montgomery County Public Schools in Maryland. After teaching for a number of years, I began my work in higher education as an Assistant Professor of Education at Regent University. After earning a Ph.D., I worked in higher education at Azusa Pacific University in Southern California. When I returned to Maryland I again worked for Montgomery County Public Schools where I was a Staff Development Teacher at the elementary, middle, and high school levels. I have worked for Baltimore City Community College and Baltimore County Public Schools before coming to McDaniel. I have been blessed to be a part of the educational journey of so many students. I have learned from them as much as they have learned from me.
McDaniel College has made the difficult but necessary decision to move all undergraduate and graduate instruction to an online learning format for the remainder of the Spring Semester. Online instruction will still begin Monday, March 23. Continue to visit our COVID-19 Information Page for updates.
