Biography: I have been teaching at Pleasant Valley Intermediate for over 15 years. I graduated from Marywood University with a degree in Elementary Education and I obtained a Master’s in Education from East Stroudsburg University.
I firmly believe that each student has the ability to succeed and it is up to educators to find that spark in each one. Once that spark is lit, everything else falls in line. It is also up to educators to push each student beyond what they thought they were capable of doing.
In my spare time I like to spend time with my family having fun and relaxing. I am an avid reader and enjoy getting lost in a good book.
