Welcome to 4th Grade! It's going to be a WONDERFUL year!
I am excited to be teaching in Swedesboro-Woolwich this year! We have many new things to learn and explore. I will be working with you for ELA and Social Studies. Since I'm new to the district, I thought I would share a little bit about myself.

I graduated with a BA in Education and immediately began teaching in Maryland where I stayed for three years until I got married. Then when I moved to New Jersey, I found a teaching job mid-year in Philadelphia. I stayed there for another seven years and proceeded to get my Masters as a Reading Specialist. About this time my second child was born, so I made the decision to take time to stay home and raise my little ones. Two years ago I went back to teaching and boy, was I ready! I worked in West Deptford for the past two years, filling in for year long maternity leaves. I am so excited to be in my own classroom this year and look forward to all of the learning and memories we will make!
I have been married to my best friend for 13 years. We have two children together. My son, True, is going into 5th grade and my daughter, Finley, is going into 2nd. We love spending our weekends going on daytrips to local historical or fun places. Our dog, River, is an old pitbull who loves sleeping and snuggling. My family often joins me for school functions, so you may have the opportunity to meet them (except River...she'll be snoozing).
