I received my bachelor's degree in sociology and master's degree in elementary education from the University of Virginia. While teaching kindergarten for five years, I earned a national board certification as an early childhood generalist. I have been a graduate assistant for the BEST in CLASS project for three years while pursuing my doctorate in educational psychology. Coaching teachers is both my job and my passion. My dissertation topic is family and teacher relationships, focused on students with problem behaviors.
