Welcome students and families! I am excited to be working with all of you this year. 

For those of you who already know me, I can't wait for another productive year! For those of you who don't yet know me,  I look forward to getting to know one another more fully as we collaborate to provide the best education for your student, but in the meantime, I will provide some background information on myself.  

I graduated from the College of the Holy Cross with a degree in Psychology. I did a brief stint in public relations, and quickly began exploring my true passion: education. I earned my Master's Degree in Moderate Disabilities from Salem State University, while teaching high school special education in a Boston-suburb and completing Orton Gillingham training. I then taught college students as a Learning Disabilities Specialist at Northeastern University, a position in which I had the unique opportunity to publish resources (Beyond Accommodations and Beyond Transition) that support college-age students. When my husband and I, both "Longmeadow transplants," moved to this remarkable community, I began working at Center School. It has been such a highlight for me to be a part of the Center School family! 

In my free time, I enjoy walking our year-old springer spaniel, Fitzy, and hanging out with our very large and loving extended families.
