Welcome to New London Academy!

I am excited to start the 23-24 school year with the New London Academy family and community. The school is steeped in traditions and has a history of high achievement and pride. I look forward to working with you all to continue this, as we work towards excellence in all we do.

A little bit about me: I grew up in Ohio, before attending college in Pennsylvania (Juniata College) where I earned a pair of bachelors, one in Psychology and the other in Communication and Conflict Resolution. Following graduation, I moved to Virginia where I taught Special Education, while coaching Soccer and Volleyball in Louisa County. During this time I received my Professional Certification as a Special Education Teacher (VCU), as well as my Masters in Administration and Supervision (Liberty). Following my time teaching, I transitioned into Administration, working two years in Roanoke City Public Schools. This is my sixth year here at NLA and I count myself blessed, as the students, staff, school, parents, and community are exceptional to work with.
