Welcome to our class page!    My first two years at Signal Hill were as a Learning Disabilities resource teacher.  I'm originally from northern Pennsylvania where I attended Mansfield University for both undergraduate and graduate school.  I am duel certified in Elementary Education and Special Education.

Before coming to Signal Hill, I worked for Lincoln Intermediate Unit in York County, PA with students with Emotional Disabilities.  I have been teaching since 1988.... whew!  Hard to believe.  

I live in Springfield, VA.  I am married and have a  13 year old stepson.   I am an animal lover and have two dogs.    I  enjoy gardening, cooking, reading, walking dogs and exercise. 

I love teaching and I absolutely love working with children.  Signal Hill is an amazing place to work and I am honored to work with such an amazing staff.  But... the kids still are the best part of every day.
