About the Teacher

School telephone:  508-634-2217 Ext. 5678 
 A reader and writer from a young age, I earned a B.A. in English and Secondary Education from LaSalle 
University (Phila.) and a M.A. in English from Boston College.  Before coming to Hopedale, 
I founded my own SAT Prep business, worked as a substitute High School English teacher 
and was at home as a mother to three "kids," who are now adults. 
I enjoy spending time with teenagers because I enjoy their energy, humor, and enthusiasm.  I am devoted to helping students improve their critical thinking and reading and to helping them develop effective writing and speaking abilities. I hold students to high expectations while also providing support and tools for reaching their goals.
