    About me:

         I have a bachelor's degree as well as a master's degree in education from Rutgers University, New Brunswick. I have been fortunate enough to be part of the Mt. Pleasant family for over 20 years. My classroom experience includes kindergarten, first, second, and now third grade. 

         When I am not at Mt. Pleasant, you can find me spending time with my family, which includes two standard-sized Goldendoodles. In my free time, I love to read and hope to instill that in my students as well. 

    What do I expect from my students and parents:

         I believe that the school and home connection is essential to the success of our young students. I encourage parents to reach out and ask questions about their children's learning and school experience. I expect my students to try their best and ask for help when needed.
