8th Grade Language Arts
Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year!
I am excited to begin my first year teaching 8th 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 AP Language and Composition. I also previously held ELA teacher middle school/high school long-term substitute positions in the Council Rock School District, and an ELA long-term substitute position at Abington Senior High School.
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 teaching certificate/Master's in Secondary Education from Saint Joseph's University.
I enjoy spending my spare time with my husband, two daughters, and our dog. I also love to read and take walks.
