    About Me

    My Education:  
    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. 
    Favorite Quotes:  
    "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.
