Hi! This is my 16th year of teaching. I have been so blessed to have taught Kindergarten, 2nd, and 5th grade. Kindergarten is my absolute favorite grade to teach. It is so much fun watching them learn!  I am married and the mom of two sons. Luke will be in 6th grade and Landon will be in 3rd grade this fall. We love spending time together and cheering on the Pittsburgh Steelers  :)

I am looking forward to a great school year.

I am married and have two wonderful little girls.  They are 5 years old and 14 months old.  Outside of school they take up most of my free time.  Some of my hobbies are reading, running, shopping and relaxing at the beach.  My favorite color is pink.

This will be my 16th year teaching at RSES. During that time I have enjoyed teaching both Kindergarten and 2nd grade. I received my undergraduate degree from the University of Delaware and my Masters Degree in Elementary Education from Wilmington University. 
 
I was born and raised in Delaware but now live in Cecil County with my husband and 3 sons. My boys keep me very busy! During my free time you can most likely find me on a baseball or soccer field or reading a good book. 
 
I look forward to a fantastic school year with my Kindergarten friends!
