     Hello and Welcome to my webpage! 
     
    I have been teaching English as a Second Langauge for the past 5 years and am really excited to be a part of the Upper Merion School District family! I earned my bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and my master's degree as an ESL Program Specialist from the University of Scranton. During my time at Scranton, I studied abroad in Ecuador, which inspired my passion for multiculturalism and the ESL field. I also completed a master's degree at Edinboro University to become a Reading Specialist. 
     
    Certifications:
    Elementary Education
    Program Specialist: ESL, K-12
    Reading Specialist, K-12 
     
    Fun Facts:
    - I love to dance and was a Zumba instructor for 3 years
    - I love working out, especially taking classes in Yoga, Spin, and Boot Camp
    - I love cooking new healthy recipes and practicing my Italian grandmother's traditional dishes
    - Even after 8 years living in center city, I still love exploring and walking around downtown
    I am really looking forward to starting this school year and getting to know all of you! Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
