I am a passionate educator with a very diverse set of background experiences including almost 7 years as a museum educator. I am committed to work that bridges the gap between formal classroom teaching and informal out-of-school-time education. I believe strongly that education should not be isolated or contained within the four walls of a classroom and that learning is a life long endeavor. I have an M.S. in Elementary Education from the University of Pennsylvania and Pennsylvania Teaching Certification for grades K-6. This site includes images and video clips of my teaching, insight into my teaching philosophy, findings from my action research in the classroom and feedback from other educators that I've worked with. One of my passions outside of the world of education is needle felting and fiber arts. Feel free to check out my work.
