I am so excited you will be joining me in this journey. This is my seventh year teaching, and I absolutely love it! It is the best job in the world.
I was born and raised in Fox Chase, Philadelphia, PA.
I loved playing all sports as a kid, especially softball.
I graduated from Cardinal Dougherty High School -WE ARE CD!
When I was a teenager, my father opened a Dunkin Donuts' in Northeast Philadelphia. So,it was time to make the donuts'. I worked side by side my family for the next twenty years. Something was always brewing while working with my three sisters, one brother, and my mother and father! And I don't just mean the coffee. I graduated from Holy Family University with my B.A degree. I continued to work in the family business while having a family of my own. My husband and l have three children-Andrew, Breana, and Ethan. After many years of working along side my family, I made the decision to take a break from the business to stay home to raise my children. I love being a MOM! It is one of my greatest accomplishments and truly a special gift.
It was while I was home raising my children, I discovered my true passion. I wanted to work with kids, I wanted to be a teacher. So I headed back to school and I received my certification in Elementary Education.
I moved to Upper Perkiomen 14 years ago and I started a new adventure at Hereford Elementary as a Paraprofessional. I worked with kindergarten and first grade students'. Fast forward, a few years later, I got a position as a fifth grade teacher. Woohoo! I have now been teaching for nine years and LOVE every minute of it. There is nothing more rewarding than teaching fifth grade.
Do you love to read? Do you want to be part of a team?
We are excited to begin the Hereford Elementary Reading Olympics program for the 2017-2018 school year. Teams of up to 12 students collectively read the books on the Reading Olympics book list and practice working together as a team to answer questions about those books.
