       Welcome to middle school! This is my ninth year teaching sixth grade English here at Northley.  As an undergrad, I studied Elementary Education at West Chester University and graduated in 2007. Then during my first year of teaching, I went back to school to receive my Masters Degree in education from Wilkes University. Last year, I ventured back to the classroom as a grad student once again to further my expertise and apply new knowledge of the learning process with my own students. I look forward to sharing my love of learning with all of you and to partner with your parents to maximize your potential. Outside of school, I enjoy swimming, shopping, and spending time with my family. I'm ready to learn about each of your interests and use that knowledge in the classroom.  Let's have a great year!  

    Important Communication Information
    Along with the entire sixth grade staff, I will be using a Google spreadsheet to update my homework assignments and due dates.  Not only will the spreadsheet be updated, but I will also post assignments and due dates in my classroom as I provide time for students to check that board daily.  Click here to visit the Sixth Grade Assignment Board
