    Hello!
      This is my seventh year as the Gifted teacher and the second official year as the Model UN Advisor at the Exeter Township Senior High School.  I started substitute teaching in 2001 as a Guest Teacher, which is a program offered through the BCIU.  Since that time I have worked in the Exeter Township, Oley Valley, Antietam, and Governor Mifflin School Districts.  In December 2010 I obtained my Elementary and Special Education teaching certifications through Alvernia University, and became certified to teach Middle School English and Middle School Social Studies shortly thereafter.  I originally attended York College of Pennsylvania where I dual majored in Marketing and Management.  In May 2015 I completed my Masters of Education through Alvernia University.
     There are many enrichment activities gifted students can take advantage of at the secondary level.  These include career research, SAT/PSAT/ACT preparation, classroom curriculum enrichment, and college research, to name a few.  I have provided links for resources on the left side of this page.  I strongly recommend students and parents add the Exeter guidance website to their favorites and check them often; there is a wealth of information pertaining to community service hour opportunities, college timelines, PSAT/SAT/ACT information, college representative visits, and upcoming events.  The Naviance website, which students have access to, also has great resources.  Students can participate in up to three job shadowing experiences per year.  Please have your child see his or her guidance counselor or me for more information.
         We encourage students to take the PSAT in their sophomore year as a practice run, work on their specific areas of need once they receive their test results, then take it again in their junior year to hopefully qualify for the Merit Scholarship Award.
      Pertaining to the Model UN, the club meets after school weekly for approximately 30 minutes to discuss Parliamentary Procedure, writing a resolution, and upcoming Model UN Conference topics.  All students are welcome to join throughout the year.
      If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate  to contact me via my information provided above.
    Thank you!
