The thing I love most about teaching/working at SWS is… the warm welcoming environment and the focus on kindness.

The thing I am most proud of is… my 3 children: Hunter, Teddy and Mikayla.

In my free time I enjoy… traveling with my family and friends, dunkin donuts coffee and ANYTHING Disney!

My teaching style is all about positive behavior interventions and supports. I encourage a culture of reading by keeping it fun! If you enjoy reading, you will chose to read.

I am proud of my work with 9/11 education. I have worked with both the tribute center in New York City and the Pentagon to help create relevant and age-appropriate lessons that focus on triumph after tragedy. This curriculum brings “never forget” to a new generation of students who are too young to have authentic memories of 9/11/01.
