Faculty & Staff Directory
B.S., Salisbury University
I grew up in Arizona, Florida, and Maryland and earned my Bachelor’s Degree from Salisbury University where I majored in Elementary Education. It was at Salisbury where I met my husband, Mike. After graduation, I taught for one year at an intermediate school in Wicomico County, Maryland. My first child, Kyla, was born in 2000. My husband’s job moved us to northern Virginia in 2002. It was then that I first began teaching at Barnesville. I taught 4th Grade here for four years before leaving to become a stay-at-home mom. During this time I also earned my Master’s Degree in Special Education from Hood College. The Popielaski Family welcomed Luke in 2006 and Jack in 2008. In 2013, after seven years at home, I decided to return to teaching. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, running, spending time with my family and watching my kids play lacrosse.
