My educational career is rooted in my experience as a classroom teacher in the K-12 world. I spent time teaching in Brooklyn, NY, Quito, Ecuador, York, PA, and Lancaster, PA. I've taught at all levels, elementary, middle, and high school. My primary teaching focus has been as an English Language Development (ELD) teacher, but I also taught high school and middle school English for numerous years. I enjoy sharing my experiences with my students and guiding them in ways that others guided me in my early years of teaching.

I live in Lancaster, PA with my husband and our two children. I enjoy traveling, cooking, reading, a good cup of coffee, and time with my family.
