     Welcome: I am excited to begin my 21st year of teaching, and my eleventh year with Upper Merion Area High School. I am truly excited to be working for such an amazing district, in such a wonderful school. I am looking forward to a wonderful year together!
    About Myself:
    I graduated from Kutztown University with a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education. For six years, I taught 3rd through 5th grades at Renaissance Academy. During the 2006-2007 school year, I was a Reading Specialist at Drexel Hill Middle School. While teaching, I obtained my Reading Specialist Degree from Saint Joseph's University. I am certified in Elementary K-6, Reading Specialist K-12, and English/Language Arts 7-12. I have two amazing children.  My son, Aidan is going to be 15, and my daughter, Mairead is 11.  My son loves soccer, lacrosse, and basketball.  He is interested in anything that involves sports, especially the Eagles! My daughter loves dancing and soccer.  She loves to listen to music and play at the park.  As a family, we enjoy spending time together while participating in outside activities.
