Teacher of English, Reading & Special Education
I was born & raised in Canada and started my career at HMHS in January of 2007. I have co-taught in primarily in CP English 9 and 11 classes, but also in French and US History. I have recently been certified as a Level 1 Wilson Practitioner and will continue my training toward Level II Certification.
My philosophy is based on the notion that fair is each student getting what they need, rather than getting the same thing. With this in mind, we have students with unique learning needs included in classrooms with more mainstream learners. While some students may have scaffolds in place to support their learning, they are able to be meaningful contributors to the classroom. One student may struggle with reading comprehension, but excel in the performance of texts--in this way, all students benefit from the inclusion setting in Haddonfield.
I am co-teacher in the following classes:
CP ENGLISH 9 P1 & 3 with Mr. Sean Thomas
CP ENGLISH 11 P4 with Mr. David Scorsolini
You can find more information about our classes on Canvas. Parents can follow students with a unique login.
I am the teacher-advisor for the Gender-Sexuality Alliance, an advocacy and support group for LGBTQ students and their allies.
In my free time, I spend time with my children, Milo (11) and Finn (6), in our new home, volunteer at an animal shelter, and play guitar and sing in a band called The Classic Brown with my husband. Our Christmas music has been featured on NPR and WXPN. I am a founding organizer of Collingswood Porchfest--an all-day music festival where over 50 artists/groups play on over 40 porches on the third week of September.
