Welcome! I've been teaching first grade for the past two years. Prior to that, I worked as a Basic Skills teacher, focusing on phonics and reading interventions.
I believe that a classroom should be hands-on and innovative. I inspire the true creative minds of my students. We share a mutual respect for each other and our learning. I also have a Flexible Seating styled classroom filled with floor cushions, yoga mats, exercise balls, and stools!

I graduated from Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania in 2013 with a BS in Elementary Education. I am certified PK-4 in Pennsylvania and K-6 in New Jersey. I will be pursuing a Masters of Education in Literacy Instruction with a Reading Specialist concentration as well as a Supervisory certificate.
When I am not in the classroom, I spend my time golfing and gardening. I love to hike and spend most of my time outdoors.
