Degrees and Certifications:
This is my thirteenth year teaching 8th grade Language Arts at Great Valley Middle School. I am also a member of the Star Team and involved with the poetry program for our annual Arts Night. It is a dream job to introduce students to my favorite book, To Kill a Mockingbird, read their poetry, and celebrate their growth as readers and writers.
At York College, I earned a B.A. in Education and a B.A. in English. I have a Masters in English literature from Villanova University, where I met my husband Andrew. I enjoy reading British literature, the New Yorker, and poetry. Andrew and I are devoted Pittsburgh Penguins fans, and love having our basset/beagle Sherlock walk us around the neighborhood! Our daughter Josephine is the light of our life. She loves diner breakfasts, laughing loudly, and her board book edition of Pride and Prejudice.
