Hello Everyone,
 
I have been at Rising Sun Elementary since 2000. 
 
I started out as a General Assistant working in the library. In 2004 I was offered an Office Assistant position but still worked in the library.  In 2007 I became a Paraprofessional working in Kindergarten and moved to Pre-K a few years later.
 
I absolutely love working with the children, they teach me as much as I teach them!
 
I live in Rising Sun with my husband of nearly 40 years. Our four children are grown and spread out all over the country but we get together often.
 
Every year is an adventure!

I am so excited to begin my journey here at RSES. I work in the Student Support Center.

Before coming to CCPS I worked in Harford County for 10 years and then I was lucky enough to stay home with my daughters Olivia (age 5) and Jade (age 2).

Some of my favorite things to do with my family and friends are going to the beach, swimming, and playing at the park. You will hear me talk a lot about my daughters, our new kitten Oscar, and our black lab Lucy. Thank you for welcoming me here at RSES and I look forward to a wonderful year.

Rising Sun Elementary School has been such a great place to work. I just started my journey here, this school year and we have an amazing staff and teachers. 

I have been working for CCPS for 14 years.I spent 8 years at Kenmore Elementary, 5 years at Cherry Hill Middle and this 1 year at Rising Sun. Thank you for welcoming me into such a great family community. 
 
I have three wonderful children, Timothy, Andrew, Megan, my daughter- in- law Kristine and my fantastic husband Steve. I have lived in Elkton my whole life. We like to visit California in the summertime because our oldest son lives there. I have two adorable dogs that I love so much. They are Yorkie-Poo's named Molly and Finn.
 
We love to go to the beach and spend time as a family. I love to be outside and play games. I love chocolate and walking my puppies. I really love my job here at Rising Sun Elementary School!

Hi! I’m so excited to start the new school year! I have a lot of great memories here at RSES. A long time ago, I was a student here at this school. Yes, it is true!  Years later, I was a parent volunteer for my children's teachers. That is where the love of working with the children and seeing their awesome smiles when you walk through the door. I was lucky enough to be asked to become a General Assistant in 1995. That’s when I had blue fingers everyday from the Ditto machine making copies.  Two years later, when the "No Child Left Behind" program began, I became a Special Education Para. I have worked in all grade levels with the BEST teachers for 22 years. This will be my 2nd year in Pre-K and truly enjoy watching each student grow and develop throughout the year and beyond.

On a personal note, I live here in RS with my husband of 43 years. We have two grown children (Trish and Cody) with 4 grandbabies (Sasha, Jack, Connor, and Taylor). We have a Silver Lab puppy named Tucker.

A few of my favorite things:
Color- Aqua and Turquoise
Food- Pancakes, Seafood, and Chocolate
Season- Summertime so I can be outdoors
Hobbies- DIY house projects and golfing
Flowers- Bleeding Hearts and Fuchsia
Holiday- Christmas
