My career in teaching began when my two sons were in elementary school and I was a parent tutor. I believed I could make a difference in the lives of future students based on teacher practices I observed from successful teachers, as well as from teachers who were not tolerant of learning differences and energy levels among students.
I returned to school and earned my master's degree in Educational Leadership and elementary certification at Immaculata University. I have been employed for the last twelve years by the Chester County Intermediate Unit teaching incarcerated youth who need patience, persistence, and encouragement in order to become successful and productive students in order to earn a high school diploma.
I thoroughly enjoy connecting with my students and helping them to succeed in all aspects of learning. My belief is that they need to follow the paths that life affords them in order to choose a career, not just a job, that they can be passionate about.
All students have learning differences; that is, each student learns differently. It takes patience, caring, and the understanding of each student's strengths and weaknesses in order to help a child realize his or her full potential. My goal is to provide the methods necessary in order for each student to become a productive participant in his or her community.
