    This is my fourteen year teaching 7th Grade Life Science for Exeter Junior High School and I am looking forward to another great year!  In addition to teaching, I also coach the Junior/Senior High Science Olympiad Team, advise the Junior High Envirothon Team, serve as a member of our SAP Team, mentor new teaching staff, and assist the Berks County Flight Team.  To provide you with some personal background, I graduated from Albright College with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology, Art, and Psychology.  I also attended Kutztown University, where I earned a Master of Education degree in Secondary Education Curriculum and Instruction, a Master of Arts degree in Marital and Family Counseling, and my teaching certificate in Biology.  When I am not teaching, I enjoy cheering for the Reading Royals, researching my family history, traveling with my husband and children, and mostly spending time with my daughter and son.
