About Me:   I am originally from Stoneham and I am a third generation member of St. Patrick Parish. After attending Saint Anselm College in New Hampshire, I moved back to raise my three children and be closer to my family.  I love volunteering in the community and I am actively involved with the Stoneham Boy and Girl Scout Troops.  I have always been passionate about teaching and I am fortunate to be teaching second grade here with such a wonderful school and parish community, that has always been such an important part of my life.

Education: I am a graduate of Salem State University with my M.Ed. in Elementary Education and BA in Finance from Saint Anselm College.

Honors and Awards: Pi Lambda Theta, National Honor Society for Educators

Memorable Teaching Moment:  There are so many…I think it would be when a student made a card for me that said:  “Thank you for helping me to get better at math by making it so fun”.

Favorite quote: 

“Kinder than is necessary. Because it’s not enough to be kind. One should be kinder than needed.” -R.J. Palacio, Wonder
