Hello Trailside Community! It is my pleasure to be starting my seventh year as an Instructional Specialist at Trailside Middle School. This year I am serving in the role of the Special Education Subject Area Lead Teacher and will be working across grade levels and contents with our special education students. I am excited to take on the challenge of Virtual Learning and get to know our students on a more personal level!
I am a graduate of The Pennsylvania State University (WE ARE!), and I acquired both my Bachelor's of Science in Special Education and my Master's of Education in Curriculum and Instruction there. Happy Valley, PA has become my second home, and I am a die-hard fan of anything Penn State, especially football!! As a lifelong learner, my pursuit of education did not end at Penn State. Last year, I finished my coursework and now hold a secondary Master's in Educational Leadership from George Mason.
Originally I hail from Cinnaminson, New Jersey, so I am very much a Jersey girl! I spent and still spend my summers with my family in Ocean City, New Jersey, and it is certainly my happy place. In addition, I am a huge fan of the Philadelphia Eagles and enjoy returning to Philly to watch games with my family.
As an instructional specialist, my goal this year, and every year, is to establish lasting relationships with my students in order to empower them to be the absolute best thinkers, workers, creators, and members of society that they can possibly be. Working with children is sincerely my passion, and I cannot WAIT to make a difference in the lives of my students during my time at Trailside!
