Welcome to my web page. I am excited for another school year. Let me tell you about myself...
My entire teaching career has been within the Pottsgrove School District. Currently, I am the Pottsgrove High School Life Skills teacher. I started teaching in the Fall of 1990. In previous years, I was a Learning Support teacher for 3rd-5th grades at Lower Pottsgrove Elementary and 6th-8th grades at Pottsgrove Middle School.
During my first two years of teaching, I doubled as the assistant girls basketball coach. Although I enjoyed coaching, I gave the position up to pursue my Masters Degree.
I am originally from Michigan, but now call PA home. I graduated from Boyertown High School. I currently live in New Hanover Township with my adult "kids" and our cat, Cookie.
My hobbies and interests are varied. I have an active lifestyle which includes exercising, gardening, golf and being outside. I enjoy supporting marginalized groups. I serve on the Board of Directors for a non-profit organization called Happy 2 be Home, which helps to fund home renovation projects for families to keep their medically fragile and/or physically handicapped children at home.
I am the advisor of Pottsgrove High School's first GSA (Gender & Sexuality Alliance) called SOUP. To learn more about SOUP, please click on the icon to the left. I am also the advisor of Falcon Friends - a wonderful club that encourages friendships between typical students and students with different abilities.
