is a graduate of Cedar Crest College with a B.A. in Communications, and a Masters Degree in Middle School Education from George Mason University. This is her 22nd year teaching in a middle school classroom, and her 18th year at Harper Park. In addition to teaching, this is her fifth year serving as the director for the spring musicals at HPMS. She enjoys teaching 8th Grade English and Exploratory Dramatics.
She has had two articles published: "Find That Child" in Chicken Soup for the Volunteer's Soul and "Feed Your Brain" in a professional journal. Her "Feed Your Brain" concept caught the eye of the American Library Association, and they have created posters which are displayed in schools and libraries across the country! She enjoys bringing her publishing experiences into the classroom when she assists her students with their writing, editing, and publishing. When she is not in her classroom or in a meeting, you will probably find her in our school's auditorium directing our students for an upcoming dramatic performance or leading our drama club students through some acting exercises.
