          I have been an educator since 1981. My first twelve years of teaching were at private schools in New York and Pennsylvania. During those years I taught second, first and fifth grades. When I moved to the West End in 1989 I thought Pleasant Valley looked like a wonderful place to teach. Having had family members go through the PV system I knew that education provided was excellent. My own child is a student in this district and has been fortunate to have been taught by the excellent teachers on the Pleasant Valley staff. In 1993 I was hired by the Pleasant Valley School District. I  was at Polk School for 21 years ,where I taught first grade for 3 years and have been teaching 2nd grade  for the past 18 years. This  year  will be my 23rd year at Pleasant Valley. I am excited to have joined the wonderful staff and faculty of Pleasant Valley Elementary . I truly love working in this district and in the West End. Pleasant Valley's faculty, staff , students and parents have become part of my family.  Pleasant Valley School District has become my home and I can truly say I am PV PROUD! I look forward to working with you and your child to make second grade an enjoyable and learning filled year. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.
