Welcome to a new school year and welcome to kindergarten!

I hope you had a wonderful summer!

As a co-teacher in your child’s classroom, Mrs. Miller and I will be working together to serve all students. We hope that you will feel excited to have not one, but two teachers that will love your child and will do anything to help them succeed.  

I am certified both in elementary general education and in special education.

I am so excited to work with you and your child this year.  It is going to be a year full of fun, learning, and lots of adventures as we navigate through these crazy times.

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. It is important to keep communication open between us and I would love to talk to you whenever you feel the need. I look forward to a great year together.

All About Me

I grew up in Bridgewater, N.J.

I graduated from Monmouth University

I am married to my wonderful husband, Curt (38 years this October)

We have two daughters: Caryn passed away 14 years ago after a three year battle with cancer. She was 19.

Carissa will be 31 in September. She is married (6 years in October), graduated from Quinnipiac University in Connecticut. She is a 4th grade teacher!  She and her husband live in Connecticut.

Before children, I worked for 3 years at Carolyn Stokes Nursery School in Trenton and 2 years as a 3rd grade teacher at Villa Victoria Academy in West Trenton.

I have now worked in the Hopewell Valley School District for 17 years. 8 years at Timberlane (Special Ed. Resource Social Studies), 3 years at the high school, and returning for my sixth year here at Bear Tavern.

Summer always ends with good memories. I hope you and your family enjoy what is left of summer vacation.
