Professional Biography

  • I have been teaching middle school since 1992, when I graduated from St. Martin's University (as their Salutatorian) with my Education Degree.  I have a Master's Degree in Curriculum Development and love that aspect of my current position.  I also have four minor degrees in mathematics, social studies, history and elementary education.  I have had the opportunity to teach math, reading, language arts, health and physical education - all at the middle school level.  This has been a tremendous advantage working with students as I am aware of state expectations and curriculum from various subject areas.  I have also had the opportunity to write state assessments and district level benchmark exams.  This has greatly improved my understanding of how students are assessed and I use this knowledge to guide my curriculum.  To round out my day I usually coach volleyball, basketball, soccer, and track after school. 


  • I have advisory in the morning then blocked math classes until enrichment begins (5th and 6th period).  Currently I am teaching a support math class for enrichment, but occasionally I  also teach PE during enrichment hours.
