    People always ask me why I decided to become a teacher. The answer is simple… I was inspired by someone who to this day I believe to be one of the greatest teachers I have ever met. I was fortunate enough to meet such an inspiring influence in my 6th grade Social Studies class in Klinger Middle School. Since then I have dreamt about the opportunity to follow in his footsteps and love working with future generations as a career.


    After graduating from William Tennent High School I went to Penn State Abington for two years. I transferred to Main Campus in State College my junior year where I entered into a Secondary Education program. I completed my student teaching at Maple Point Middle School and received my bachelor’s degree in 2001.


    Since coming to the Neshaminy School District I have taught a variety of subjects at the High School and also spent one year teaching 8th grade at Carl Sandburg in 2008. This will be my 10th year teaching in the district. Currently I am teaching 11th grade U.S. & Contemporary World History and 12th grade Civics & Economics. I am also the coach of our freshman girl's basketball team and jv softball team. 


    In my spare time I enjoy anything related to sports, whether it be playing, watching, or coaching them. I consider myself a traditional Philadelphia fan and support the Phillies, Eagles, Flyers, and Sixers… and of course, the Nittany Lions! To relax I play golf, fish, and spend time with my family. I love spending summers at the beach and winters on the slopes. I am also in the process of earning credits to obtain a Master’s Degree.


    If you don’t know where you are going,

    you’ll end up someplace else.
