About Me


Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counselors, and the most patient of teachers.”―Charles William Eliot

One of my favorite things to do is read.  In the summer, you will finHibiscusd me sitting on the deck in the backyard of our house, dogs at my feet, under the umbrella, reading.  The past few years, our yearly vacation has been to the Outer Banks in North Carolina; the perfect vacation:  the beach, a chair, and a bag of books!  In the winter, same scenario, expect I move inside.  My other joy is Hibiscusgardening; I love flowers.  When we moved to our home, it was new; no flowers, no daffodils, and no tulips, something I look for every spring.  The following spring, I tilled every inch of soil, and planted bulbs and flowers that would come back every year; one of the great joys in life, flowers.
    I am married to John and am the mother of three children;kids Bridgid is 25 years old and works as a Speech Therapist in the Philadelphia area, a proud graduate of Penn State; Annelise is 17 and a junior in High School, and Andrew is 15 and a sophomore in high school.

eliMy 17 year old daughter and I are great fans of the New York Giants.  I tell people I have created a monster; Annelise is a very passionate defender of all things New York Giants, especially Eli Manning.  We have gone to a few games together, and never fail to have a fabulous, raucous time.


         After 24 years of working for a Fortune 500 Company, I was laid off, as were a lot of my co-workers.  Initially, it was a shock.  However, when one door closes, another opens; that has led me to where I stand today.
         Twenty five years ago, my mother told me that I should have gotten my first degree in Education to teach English, as I was someone who always loved to read and write.  I should have listened to my mother, of which I have gladly told her this over the course of the last year; she keeps telling me, better late than never!  This new path in life has brought me to Moravian College, to gain a Teacher Certificate in English Education, Grades 7-12.  So far it’s been a pleasure.  I did not appreciate the absolute thirst I have for learning when I was an undergrad. books I am looking forward to, hopefully, finding a teaching job and closing out my working career doing something that I absolutely love – teaching my students to enjoy and absorb reading and literature as much as I do.
