I have taught for many years in several districts.  This will be my 20th year with the Erie School District.   I hold a Bachelors and Masters degree in Elementary Education from Edinboro University. I also hold a Reading Specialist certificate. I have taught at all primary grade levels. I have been a Reading Recovery Teacher, a Title I reading teacher, and a classroom teacher. I have always enjoyed working with children and seeing them develop their potential in all areas and look forward to working with your child on their journey to becoming life long learners.  I have always wanted to be a teacher and enjoy my job. 
    I have three grown sons. One is a physical therapist, one works for Microsoft, and the other one works for a web page company.   I love to read and enjoy sharing my love of reading with the students.   In the summer I enjoy working in my garden with the flowers and vegetables I attempt to grow.  
    I am looking forward to becoming a partner with you as we help your student become independent and a life long learner.
