This is my seventh year teaching Kindergarten at North Salem. I have enjoyed my time with both half day and full day classes. North Salem is truly a great place to learn and grow!
I earned my Bachelor's degree in Elementary and Special Education at the University of Delaware. Upon graduating I began teaching in a third grade classroom for one year and a first grade classroom for three additional years. I spent several years at home with my young children before returning to my first passion--teaching. My daughter is now 10, a new middle schooler, and my son is 7, currently in first grade.
I recently earned a Master's Degree from Southern New Hampshire University in Curriculum and Instruction, and have recently begun a second program focused on Literacy. When I am not at school I enjoy running, reading, cooking, skiing, and lazy days at the lake with my family.
