    This fall I will be entering my third year as a high school health and physical education teacher. Before Upper Merion, I studied at West Chester University, where I received my undergraduate degree and also received a minor in coaching. I completed my student teaching here at Upper Merion Middle School in the 2018-2019 school year and became a building substitute for the 2019-2020 school year. 

    Here at the high school I plan to be heavily involved in teaching and extra-curricular activities. The courses I teach this year include Teen Issues (9th Grade Health) and Physical Education. I am an assistant coach for the football team, assistant track & field coach and a PBIS core team member. 

    The best way to contact me is through email. Please visit my schoology page for information on each course that I teach.
