I am so excited to start my second year as a 4th grade teacher here at Indian Lane.  I was fortunate enough to serve as the math interventionist in 2019 and instantly fell in love with this very special place.  I cannot wait to return to school to see the smiling faces of the amazing students  and staff at Indian Lane!

A little about me...

In 2004, I received my teaching degrees from Temple University in elementary and special education.  Upon my graduation, I was lucky to find a position in the Neshaminy School District teaching special education at the middle school level.  During that time, I went back to school and received my masters degree in Applied Behavioral Analysis ad Autism Studies, a degree that has served me well in the classroom.

A few years ago I made the difficult decision to leave that position and stay at home with my two young children.  During that break, I took trainings to become a certified children's yoga and mindfulness instructor.  That experience is something I am excited to bring into the classroom!  

I missed being in the classroom each and every day of my absence.  I was fortunate to transition back into education as the math interventionist last year.  I feel so lucky that it has led me to becoming a 4th grade teacher at ILE this year.  

I live in Glen Mills with my husband, two children (Dylan, 10 and Mackenzie, 8), our cat (Whiskers), Labradoodle (Potter), and as of a week ago, our baby Sheepadoodle (Hazel).  I enjoy running, practicing yoga, reading, and coaching my daughter in softball and basketball.  I am also a passionate volunteer and love getting little ones involved in the volunteer world.

 

I can't wait to see everyone, it's going to be an amazing school year in room 254!
