Hello, and thank you for visiting. I grew up in Bridgewater New Jersey. I attended Kean College (now University) in Union New Jersey, where I earned a B.A. in Earth Science and Secondary Education. Shortly after graduating from Kean I began working for Northern Burlington Regional School District as a 9th grade science teacher.
I spent 9 years at the high school where I taught Earth Science, Physical Science and Integrated Science. I also spent some time coaching basketball and softball. While working in the high school I was part of a program we called HOUSE which piloted the idea of placing 9th grade students on a team. At the time Northern’s population was growing quickly and idea of a team was to create a school within a school in order to create a community feel. I fell in love with the concept of a team and jumped at the opportunity to join the Dream Catcher Team at the middle school as their 7th grade science teacher. I have been here ever since. I have recently reentered the world of middle school sports, after stepping away from coaching for a few years to be with my 2 daughters.
