Why I Choose to Work at Nova

I love the accelerated pace and high expectations for the scholars at Nova.  Students and their families are dedicated to Education and you can clearly see the impact that has on everything they produce.


I enjoy watching all sports, playing golf, collecting sports cards, spending time with my family, watching movies, reading, and even playing video games.

Favorite Books

I love the Harry Potter series, The Giver, To Kill a Mockingbird
