• school photo Welcome student and families! 


    I am incredibly excited to be starting my third year 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.

    Again, welcome and I am looking forward to a great 2020-2021 school year!
