logoAbout Me
Lincoln Memorial

I am an alumna of Moravian College.  I graduated with a B.A. of History in May 2003.  I have always had a passion for learning history.  I want to share that passion with today’s children as the importance of history is dwindling in today’s educational curriculum standards.

I love working with children for two reasons.  The first reason is the satisfaction from when you know that you have inspired someone to learn about something critical for today’s world. The second is that I feel blessed when my students inspire within me that which I hope to inspire in them.  My students motivate me to continually grow as a student, as a global citizen, and as a mentor.  They keep me striving for more out of life.  I strive to foster an environment where everyone that is involved learns together. 

The passions that I love to share with my students are largely involved with nature and music.  I love to be outside when not in the classroom.  My husband and I love to travel to beautiful destinations for climbing and experiencing other cultures. I spend most of my free time gardening for my family, several friends, and myself.  This is an activity that I do with students several times throughout the year.  A personal goal would be to start an organic vegetable garden at the Phillipsburg Middle School.  My other outdoor hobbies include kayaking on the Delaware River as well as biking as frequently as possible.

Reach Students on Stage

I have loved music since I was a girl.  As a teenager I began playing guitar and learning songs to sing while playing.  When I started Moravian in 2001 I took classical guitar lessons.  Music is an excellent way to connect with others.  I have organized the annual talent show at Phillipsburg Middle School for five years.  It is one of the highlights of my year.
