I have been teaching in the Oxford Area School District
since 2008. I have taught at several different grade levels, with a concentration in 5th and 6th grade. My teaching experiences include teaching special education, autistic support, and regular education for all content areas. I am certified to teach Elementary Education, Special Education, and Middle School Mathematics. In addition, I earned my Master's Degree from Drexel University in Mathematics Learning and Teaching.
I have also tutored for many years; first during my own middle school and high school career, and have continued throughout my adult life. I joined the Oxford Education Foundation in 2005 and continue as a tutor in intermediate and secondary mathematics. We adopted a class pet in the spring of 2017, a Russian Tortoise named Franklin. He is an active, curious and very friendly tortoise.
I am a resident within the Oxford Area School District, and am proud that my children have had successful experiences attending this school district. In addition to my 3 children, my family also includes one cat, two dogs, and one goldfish. I have a passion for reading, cooking, gardening, and most recently, scuba diving. The beach is my happy place, and I earned my advanced open water scuba certification in 2017. I also love the comic strip, "Peanuts," and have many characters displayed throughout the classroom. Most importantly, I enjoy time with my friends, family, and love the challenge of learning something new each day.
