I am excited to be back at Poultney High School this year! Now that I know the students, staff, and community better, I am even more grateful to be here and more eager to do all I can for our students.
A little bit about me: I grew up in Philadelphia and earned an academic scholarship to Temple University where I completed a Bachelor of Science in Education with a specialization in Secondary Mathematics. Then I taught Mathematics for 15 years, working with students of diverse backgrounds in both middle and high school settings. During my teaching career, I earned a Master of Arts in Education from Gratz College, with a focus on meeting the learning needs of all students. Next came a position as a Professional Development Specialist with an Intermediate Unit in Pennsylvania, a regional agency that supports the initiatives of the Pennsylvania Department of Education. In my eight years there, I worked with educational leaders, teachers, teacher assistants and others to improve teaching and learning outcomes for students in 15 school districts. I completed a Master of Science in Educational Leadership from St. Joseph’s University in Philadelphia in 2012. In 2015, I joined Poultney High School and the RSWSU leadership team to work with PHS teachers, parents and community to ensure that all our students achieve and grow academically, socially and personally.
On a personal note, I have three grown children (one here in Vermont) and two beautiful grandchildren.

What is Section 504?
Congress passed Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act in 1973 to protect people with disabilities from discrimination in programs that receive federal funds, including schools.
Section 504 guarantees that students with disabilities who qualify must have equal access to all academic and non-academic activities and programs, including after school programs.
