English Language Development (ELD)
Hi! I am the English Language Development Teacher for students at Marlborough and Hereford Elementary, the middle school, and the high school. I have been teaching English Learners for 13 years. I have been privileged to work with students and families from all over the world. I have a Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Education from Kutztown University, a Master's Degree in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) from DeSales University, and I am currently working towards a second Masters from Wilkes University in Developmental Strategies in Education. Besides teaching students and being a student, I enjoy walks with my dog, Leila, exercising, and reading on the beach!
