High School Assistant Principal
Students Grades 10 and 12
Location: High School
I am so excited to begin my 17th year working in the district. I spent 6 years as a Social Studies teacher at the high school and am entering my 11th year as an assistant principal. I have been an assistant principal in both the high school and the middle school. I am looking forward to working with the staff, students, and parents at the high school.
I have spent a majority of my life in the Upper Merion Area School District. I attended Bridgeport Elementary, Upper Merion Middle, and Upper Merion High School (Class of '94). I received my Bachelor's Degree from Ursinus College and my Master's Degree from Cabrini College. As a teacher at the high school, I taught a variety of courses including AP Government and Politics, Western Civilizations and Psychology.
I am a firm believer that students need to become involved in the extra curricular activities while in school. While a student at Upper Merion I participated in football and wrestling. I was also a member of the National Honor Society and Varsity Club. At Ursinus I was on the football team and the Social Sciences Honor Society. While at the high school, I coached football and wrestling and was active with the Community of Caring. I am currently the president of the Optimist Club of Valley Forge, who work closely with the Junior Optimists (Middle School) and Octagon Club (High School). The Optimist motto is "Bringing Out the Best in Kids".
I am proud to be a part of such a wonderful staff that strives to "Be Someone's Champion" each day.
