My Experience: I am entering my 10th year as an educator, but in my 17th year working at Springer Middle School. While at Springer I have held many positions -- paraprofessional, interventionist, special education teacher, special education team leader, and 6th grade ELA teacher. I have also had the distinct privilege to coach wrestling (head coach 16 years) and baseball (assistant coach 7 years). I have worn many different hats in this building and enjoy tackling new challenges.
Teaching Philosophy: I want to help you build the confidence in your skills so that you will not be afraid to take risks. By taking these risks, whether you are successful or fail spectacularly, you will learn something new each time. This is the knowledge you will build on to become the achiever I know you can be.
Personal Interests: Spending time with my wonderful family, discgolf, rock wall climbing, Philadelphia sports
