Welcome to SECOND GRADE at Elk Ridge! 


I grew up in Chester County, graduating from Downingtown Area High School in 2003. I attended Bloomsburg University and graduated in 2007 with a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education. I also attended West Chester University, graduating in 2013 with a Master's Degree in Special Education. I have been teaching second grade in OASD since 2007. I am a mommy to three little boys named Wesley, Parker and Bodie. My husband, Ben, is also a teacher Oxford Area High School.
