    A little about me:  I'm originally from Scranton, Pa.  I was a basketball player, softball, and yes, a cheerleader!  I graduated from West Chester University with a  Bachelor of Science Degree in Health & Physical Education as well as a Masters Degree in Secondary School Counseling.  I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, and am an avid sports fan (Yankees, Duke Basketball, & Michigan Football).  I have been teaching at Northley for the last 17 years and 19 overall.  I along with Mr. Campbell, are Advisors for Intramural Club. 
    I have been appointed as Northley's Activities Director for this 2018-19 school year.  I am excited to take over and oversee our students at Northely become student-athletes.  I, along with Mr. Pat Rafferty (District/Sun Valley) Athletic Director, will be promoting a culture of team, community, and excelling not only on the field but most importantly in the classroom and off the field of play.  Please check not only my webpage for Sports information but also in our weekly e-mail bulletins as well as on our district website. (Please see below for important Sports information)
    Health and Physical Education at Northley is based on teaching the students the value and importance of leading a healthy lifestyle-with the philosophy of a healthy mind in a healthy body.  Students will experience a variety of activities in their 3 years at Northley. We believe in giving students the foundation, knowledge, and skill to lead a healthy and active lifestyle for their present and their future.  Students in grades 6-8 have the opportunity to join the Intramural Club.  This club allows students to experience a variety of activities which are extensions of what we do in class inside and outside.  This club meets in the Fall and Spring.
