    Hi there!  This is my 3rd 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.

    In addition to teaching, I have been 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 below!

    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!
