    I have been teaching social studies at Upper Merion for over 18 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.  I'm excited to serve on the Parent and Community Engagement Subcommittee for the new district Equity Task Force. I got married in the summer of 2007 and had my children Leah, in 2008, and Ben in 2012.  We added our rescue dog, Finn, to our family in the summer of 2019.  My travels have taken me as far as Italy, China, India, Mexico and hopefully many more. I love to shop, whistle, eat, read and watch TV.  Students should always feel welcome in my classroom after school with any questions, social studies or non-social studies related.
