I was born and raised in Altoona Pennsylvania and went to Penn State University for my Education Degrees.  My passion is teaching!  I have been a Special Education teacher for many years.  I have taught in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Indiana, and Michigan.  This is my 4th year teaching in North Carolina.

I am very excited to be teaching at Southwood Elementary.  I teach amazing kids!  My husband and I moved to Lexington in November 2015 when I began teaching at Southwood.  We have two grown children.  My daughter is an Assistant Professor of Kinesiology and UNC Greensboro and her husband is an Assistant Director of Facilities at UNC Charlotte.  They also live in Lexington.  My son is a composer and music producer in New York City.  Besides loving spending time with children, I am a life-long Pittsburgh Steelers fan. (I am very excited that I have already met a few students who are also fans!)  My beloved Pittsburgh Penguins Hockey Team won the Stanley Cup Championship last year.  Are there any hockey fans out there that share my enthusiasm?  

My other hobbies include baking and candy making for holidays, baby showers, and weddings.  I love southern cooking and look for recipes that I can use my iron skillets. 

Please don’t hesitate to email, call, or meet with me anytime.  I am really enjoying getting to know your children this year and look forward to meeting all of you

Stay tuned—Your students and I are planning some exciting activities to share with you in our classroom!
