About Me

  •                 This is my 17th year teaching! I have taught third grade for 4 years, 6th grade for 6 years, and 4th grade for 7 years!  I can't wait to get to know my new students this year. For now, I'll tell you a little about myself! I'm a very outdoorsy person. I love hiking, camping, fishing, horseback riding, and above all....the BEACH! Which is why I live in Brick, NJ. Yes, the commute is about 45 minutes everyday, but I really don't mind because I love where I live and I love where I work! :-) My husband and I got married in 2005. We have 3 kids together- Joe will be attending Ocean County College this year to start pursuing his career in Physical Therapy  (where has the time gone?!?!), Andrew will be in 8th grade, and Madison will be in 5th grade. Father time slow down! My husband Mike has worked in Law Enforcement for 19 years and has worked as a Sheriff's deputy, Detective, and now works for U.S. Customs and Border Protection at Newark Airport.  I grew up in Tabernacle, NJ and moved with my husband to Arkansas in 2005, where his mother and sister live. We lived there for 9 years before moving back to Jersey (where my parents and twin sister live).  Looking forward to a great year with your child and getting to know them well!
