Hello Parents and Children and Welcome to Fifth Grade!

    I am looking forward to a fun year filled with many exciting learning opportunities and teachable moments!




    I have many types of experience with teaching children in some capacity  over the last 20 years including daycare, early intervention, running summer camps, coaching girls basketball, and public education. I chose to be a teacher because I have always taken an interest in watching children flourish into new stages of development. It is fascinating to watch a child apply new found knowledge into a brand new situation. That, coupled with my own love of learning (and trial and error along the way), inspired me to pursue a career in education. Having said this, please know that YOU are your child's first and most important teacher of all. Please take the time to make the most out of life's teachable moments when they happen!!

    Here are my qualifications:
    *2017 University of Pennsylvania Literacy Network Education 
    *2015 Reading Specialist Certification
    *2011 Master's Degree in Education and Educational Leadership, Alvernia University
    *2008 Master's Equivalency Pennsylvania State Certification, West Chester, Penn State, Alvernia              Universities
    *2002 Pennsylvania Writing Institute, Penn State Lehigh 
    *1999 Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education, Alvernia University

    Please email to me any questions, suggestions, or concerns you may have now or in the future and I will reply as soon as possible. I encourage you to keep the lines of communication open. Together we make a difference! Thank you and I look forward to a terrific year with you and your children!
