    Hi there!  This is my 4th year teaching at Upper Merion Middle School, and I am excited to be here!  Previously, I taught for 8 years at Arcola Intermediate School as a 7th grade learning support teacher.  I graduated from Methacton High School in 2005, and I attended Cabrini College, earning degrees in Special Education and Elementary Education.  More recently, I earned a Masters of Reading from West Chester University and just finished my Masters of Special Education this past spring.  I also hold certifications in middle grade ELA and Math and am a certified Reading Specialist.

    Last September, I had a happy, energetic baby boy, and I spend most of my free time with him these days!  He loves all types of water, whether it's in the bathtub, at the pool, or at the beach.

    In addition to teaching, I was an assistant coach for the girls basketball team at Methacton High School for 10 years (Go Lady Warriors!).  I also love spending time outdoors, either at the beach, hiking, or exploring somewhere new.  My favorite destination so far has been Glacier National Park - check out a couple of pictures!

    Reading is another way I spend my free time, and I love getting new book recommendations, so let me know if you liked a book you've read recently!

    As a teacher, my students are the most important thing to me.  I always do my best to ensure I am supporting all of my students in the best way possible, which means no two students are treated exactly the same.  I'm big on communication, so if you have a question or concern, please talk to me!  If you have questions or concerns, please contact me via email.  I check email frequently, and you will get the quickest response through this mode of communication.  I am looking forward to a great year, and I hope you are too!
