Hello! I am super excited to be starting my second year as a SECOND GRADE TEACHER! Prior to teaching second grade, I taught special education for 12 years. My undergraduate certification is through La Salle University and I also recieved my Master's in Education through Penn State. While I am still very passionate about special needs students, I also love the aspect of being a part of the classroom and building a community. I know this year will require hard work, but it will also include lots of fun and excitement!
When I am not in the classroom, I am spending time with my husband and two boys. Oliver is three years old and Jude turned one if February. Together we go for runs (my husband pushes the stroller), walk our dogs, and travel. Another passion I have is teaching yoga. I began teaching yoga in in 2008 and recently extended my certification to include instruction for children. I find that it can really help to improve self-control and mindfulness.
I look forward to school year ahead and I am always available for any questions or concerns.
