Degrees and Certifications:
I am delighted to return to the OJR HS team as a Latin teacher in the school district this school year.
I received my Bachelors Degree in Latin from Dickinson College and completed my Masters in Education at Saint Joseph's University. I have a certification in Latin and Elementary Education.
I have taught for 17 years in a wide variety of schools. I started my teaching career in Philadelphia Public School District. I taught a class at Conestoga HS while finishing my masters program and taught middle school English and social studies at a small private school. Most of my teaching career was spent at Pennfield Middle School in North Penn SD, where I taught Latin for almost 8 years. I then took a brief hiatus to stay home and raise my three daughters. When I returned to teaching I taught part time at Radnor Middle School. I am delighted return to OJR for my sixth year as a part of the OJR family.
I live in Wayne with my husband and three daughters. I would really call my home town Valley Forge because I live next to Valley Forge Park. I enjoy running in the park when I am not coaching lacrosse or driving my girls to their various activities. We enjoy camping, hiking, biking, visiting museums and going to the beach.
I personally enjoy reading, running, coaching lacrosse and spending time with my family.
