    I have been teaching social studies at Upper Merion for twelve and a half years. Before that I taught 8th grade in Hanover, Pennsylvania. I graduated York College of Pennsylvania in 2001 with a Bachelors in Secondary Education, social studies and Cabrini College in 2006 with a Masters in Education. Since 2005, I have sponsored the Cultural Heritage Club, served as a Community of Caring homeroom teacher, and help run Diversity Day. My travels have taken me as far as Italy, China, India, Mexico and hopefully many more. I got married in the summer of 2007 and had my children Leah, in 2008, and Ben in 2012.  I am excited to continue the 1 to 1 initiative this year as each student can use his or her laptop in my room.  Students should always feel welcome in my classroom after school with any questions, social studies or non-social studies related.
