Welcome to our classroom community! 

Here is a video introduction to my virtual classroom: '21 Open House Video

I am so excited to learn and grow with you this year. I am a Social Studies enthusiast and Special Education teacher.  I have three children named Pearl (7), Luca (4.5) and Ramona (4 months). As an undergrad I studied History and Politics at New York University. I earned a Masters Degree in Special Education from Arcadia University and an additional Masters Degree in Educational Leadership from Worcester State University. I love to spend time with my family, dance, travel and ride my bicycle.  

My classroom is located in the high school at C205. You can email me at I take great care to respond to all correspondence 24 hours. 

It is my absolute pleasure to be a part of the school community of the Upper Merion Area School District. I look forward to an engaging year of joy, growth, and learning together.
