    I'm very excited to begin another year at Southern Lehigh!  This year, I have the privilege of getting to know a new group of fifth graders. We're in for a great school year!
    I grew up in a small town in New Jersey and moved to Philadelphia to attend Saint Joseph's University.  At SJU, I earned my undergraduate degree in Elementary and Special Education and my master's degree in Reading Education.  Additionally, I hold certifications in English 7-12 and Math 7-9.  While in school, I played on the SJU softball team and participated in service immersion trips to Tijuana, Mexico and Hazard, Kentucky.  Of course, I also learned that The Hawk Will Never Die!  Before joining the Intermediate School when it opened in 2009, I worked as a Learning Support teacher at Lower Merion High School, right outside of Philadelphia. 

    When I'm not at the IS, I spend every minute I can with my family.  There are three little kiddos who call me mom. 

     If I get free time, which is rare these days, I enjoy reading and running.
