When I was in school, I enjoyed writing for the school newspaper, playing sports, and volunteering at a local hospital. English was always my favorite subject. Following graduation from college, I moved from my native Pennsylvania to New York and began working in the business world by writing and presenting statistical and analytical reports at Estee Lauder and Clinique. Upon the birth of my first child, I was fortunate to take some time off. After spending a few years at home raising my three children, I returned to the work force by accepting a position in an elementary school. I fell in love with teaching children. I later moved to the secondary level and worked at Syosset High School in special education classes for eight years.


I came to Levittown School District in 2008. It is wonderful to be able to combine my training in human services, special education, and English with my strong desire to serve the needs of others. Wisdom Lane Middle School is a very warm and special place! It is both my pleasure and my privilege to teach students in English inclusion and special education classes. I am inspired with a passion for English and with an appreciation for the individual learning styles and unique differences of each child. I hope to ignite in my students a love of literature, grammar, writing, and literacy.

I enjoy reading, playing tennis, gardening, and, most of all, spending time with my family.
