Welcome to 7th grade ELA!  I am so excited to be joining the CMS family.  This year starts my 31st year in education in Delaware and Maryland.  I have been an elementary and middle school teacher, a reading specialist and a coach.  My favorite years have been spent teaching middle school ELA, so I feel like I have come home to this job in Centreville.  


I was born in Dover, Delaware and went to James Madison University to earn my Bachelor of Science Degree in Education.  I have two Master’s Degrees from Wilmington University.  One is in School Instruction: Teaching and Learning and the other is in Reading.  Currently, I live in Smyrna, DE with my husband and our dog, Yoda.  I have two sons, Ryan and TJ.  


When I am not in school, you can find me reading, hiking and completing jigsaw puzzles!  I am excited to begin our virtual journey and can’t wait to connect!  The best way to connect with me is via email or through the messages in Schoology during this virtual learning time.  


One of my favorite quotes comes from Maya Angelou and she said, "Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better."  To me, this means we need to be constantly growing and adapting as we learn new things.
