8th Grade Language Arts
Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year!
I am excited to begin my twelfth year of teaching, and my fourth year teaching eighth grade Language Arts at Upper Merion Area Middle School.
Prior to joining Upper Merion, I taught at Renaissance Academy Charter School for six years, where my responsibilities included ninth grade ELA and eleventh/twelfth grade AP Language and Composition. I also previously held ELA teacher long-term substitute positions in the Council Rock and Abington School Districts.
Before entering the teaching field, I worked as a writer and editor in the public relations, publishing, and marketing communications arenas. I hold a B.A. in English/Communications Studies from Cedar Crest College and a secondary English teaching certificate/Master's in Secondary Education from Saint Joseph's University.
