I was born in a small town in north central Pennsylvania and knew I wanted to be a teacher at the age of fifteen. This mission in education has earned me two degrees from Pennsylvania public universities; a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Education from Bloomsburg University and a Master of Science degree in Elementary Education with a literacy specialty earned at Mansfield University. While I began Ph.D. work at the University of Rochester, my husband and I decided to pull up stakes and move to Farmington to combine my love of teaching and Maine.
My teaching career started in 1990 and has spanned two states and seven grade levels. During my time at Camden-Rockport, I have served as the literacy coach/ specialist, language arts teacher, and the school’s Intervention Coordinator. As the Intervention Coordinator, I serve as an advocate, facilitator, and teacher for students who need a little more help.
When not in the classroom, my family can be found working on our 200-year-old farmhouse or at a public library in the midcoast region.
