  • A little about myself: 


    I love to travel; I have been to 5 different countries and at least 30 states. During the summer of 2019 I was able to lead a group of students on a tour of Washington D.C. 

    While in D.C. we went to many different museums: Smithsonian Museums (Natural History and American History), National Air and Space Museum, Library of Congress, and the Holocaust Memorial Museum.

    We toured President George Washington’s home at Mount Vernon. We also toured the US Capitol building and we saw the White House and Supreme Court buildings.

    We visited memorials:

    Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, President Franklin Roosevelt, President Lincoln and President Jefferson Memorials

    World War II, Korean War, and Vietnam War Memorials

    Arlington National Cemetery

    9/11 Pentagon Memorial

    Overall, it was an amazing time. I am so glad that I was able to share our national history with students.
