    Teaching isn't my job, it's my passion!

    Education
    After earning my
    Bachelor's Degree in Elementary/Early Childhood Education from Edinboro University of Pennsylvania, I began my teaching career with Pre-k and kindergarten students in the suburbs of Cleveland, Ohio.
      During that time, I also earned my Master's Degree in Curriculum/Instruction and Literacy Development with a Reading Endorsement from Cleveland State University.  In 2005, Upper St. Clair offered me the opportunity to return to Pittsburgh, and it has been my pleasure to teach here at Baker ever since! 
     
    Family
    My husband and I have two children, both of whom are in middle school.  Collin is in 8th grade and Kayla is in 6th grade this year.  Being a working mom definitely has its challenges, but it allows me to have the best of both worlds--a beautiful family and a career I love!  And so, I know how precious your children are to you.  I will take care of your child this year as if he/she is my own!  
     
    Fun Facts:
    I am an identical twin. (Watch out--you may run into her around town. Many people do!) 
    I have competed in 7 triathlons.
    My family was once pictured on the cover of the USC Rec Center's Fall/Winter Guide.
    This is my 21st year of teaching!
