After graduating from Kutztown University in
2003 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Education (Secondary English), I worked at Southern Lehigh High School as an instructional
assistant during the 2003-2004 school year. From 2004-2007 I taught
10th grade English at the High School. Beginning in the fall of 2007,
I started teaching 8th grade English/Language Arts at Southern Lehigh Middle
School. In the spring of 2008, I earned my MA in English from Kutztown University. In the spring of 2016 I completed a program through Penn State Lehigh Valley to earn a Specialist Certificate: Teaching Writing and Literacy.
