About Me

In 1979, I was graduated summa cum laude from Temple University with a degree in Elementary Education. I also hold a Masters degree in Elementary Education with a concentration in reading. For 24 years, prior to reentering the teaching field, I performed dual roles as both a stay-at-home mom and owner of a graphic arts business. This allowed me the opportunity to stay active as a volunteer in the Monroe Public Schools, while remaining readily available to meet the needs of my two daughters. Eleven years ago, I joined the Frenchtown staff. I have taught in grades 3-5. I live in Monroe with my husband David. We have two daughters- Melissa, age 34, and Carly, age 27. In my spare time, I like to draw, cook, sew, and engage in numerous crafting projects. You’ll see some of my handiwork decorating our classroom. When our girls were younger, our family has hosted exchange students from all around the world. Learning about different cultures and traditions is so rewarding! I hope that you will be excited to share your family traditions with me as well.

My Goals as a Teacher:

*To provide creative, stimulating, and meaningful lessons, tailored to meet the individually diverse needs of today’s student population

*To instill a sense of pride and self-worth , promote the celebration of individual differences, and encourage students to play an integral role in their local and global communities
