    Hello and welcome to my website! 

    This year I will be your child's fifth-grade math and science teacher.  To some of you, I may be familiar because I have been a fourth-grade teacher at Annie Purl for the past two years and I have loved every step of it!  However, I am very excited to transition into fifth grade with an amazing team by my side!  I am very passionate about making learning engaging, building confidence in mathematics and science, and developing relationships with students every day.  I believe teachers who love teaching have students who love learning.

    I graduated from Kean University with my bachelor's and my certification in Elementary K-6.  I then began my education career in the fall of 2017 at Annie Purl.  Since then I have also been certified to teach English Language Learners and Gifted and Talented Students.  I was very fortunate to start my career in a beautiful, brand new school!  I am so excited to continue teaching and learning with my students this upcoming 2019-2020 school year.  My goal is to make your child fall in love with learning.  

    In my spare time, I enjoy cooking, doing crafts, spending time with my dogs, and decorating my new home!

    Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful children with me.  I am so excited to grow, learn, persevere, and adapt with your children.
