Hello to all my friends!  This will be my 22nd year teaching in Great Valley and my 9th year as a reading specialist.  Previously, I taught second grade for many years.   
    I graduated from the College of New Jersey with a BA in Elementary Education. I later received my Master's Degree and Reading Certification from Eastern College.  I have 78 additional education credits in Literacy. 
    Years before coming to Great Valley I taught sixth grade in Toms River,  NJ and preschool in the Malvern area. 
    I love teaching because we learn and discover so many new things together every day.  It's so rewarding to see the students' excitement and growth throughout the year. 
    I also love to read childrens' literature, the newspaper, teacher magazines, books from my adult book club and third grade book club here at GW.  
    I enjoy music and dancing, playing golf, reading and spending time with my family.  
    I can't wait to learn all about you!




    Some of my favorite books are:

    giving tree

    Goodnight Moon

    Gooney Bird
    and so MANY MORE!  
    I can't wait to share all my favorites with you this year.
