Hi there! This is my 5th 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.
As of July 2021, I am a mom of 2! I have a son, Danny, and a daughter, Caroline. They both have big personalities, and we love going on adventures as a family together!
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 from my honeymoon back in 2016!
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!
