• school photo Welcome students and families! 


    I am incredibly excited to be starting my fourth year as part of the Upper Merion High School team and of the larger Upper Merion school community. This year I will be teaching three sections of English Concepts, as well as co-teaching two World Cultures classes. Before joining UM, I taught for four years in Philadelphia at both the middle and high school level, teaching LS English, LS Language Arts, Drama, and AP English. I grew up in New Hampshire and went to UNH where I received my BA in English Literature and then to Franklin Pierce University where I received my Masters of Education.  I am currently enrolled in a graduate-level technology certificate program at West Chester as well.

    This year is especially exciting for my family because we have just relocated to King of Prussia and are happy to officially be part of the greater Upper Merion community!

    Again, welcome and I am looking forward to a great 2021-2022 school year!
