I received my undergraduate degree in Sociology with a concentration in Healthcare from the University of Delaware in 2003. I continued my education and pursued my Master's Degree in Special Education from Wilmington University, graduating in 2005. I am dually certified in both General Education and Special Education. I am currently enrolled in additional Master's courses to stay up to date on new approaches and research in education.
My Experience: This will be my 11th year in the Brandywine School District. I have taught many grade levels including 1st, 2nd, 4th, 6th and 7th grade.
"Fair isn't everyone getting the same thing. Fair is everyone getting what they need in order to be successful!"
"Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn." -Benjamin Franklin
Teaching Philosophy: I believe all students can learn when they are accepted for who and where they are in their educational journey. Effective learning requires a collaboration between teacher, students and parents grounded in mutual respect and trust. As a teacher, it is my goal to make each child feel that they matter, they are valued and that they are most definitely capable of success.
Personal Interests: I enjoy many things, but my most favorite are spending time with my family and friends, reading, going to the beach, and playing outside with my children.
