Brief Biography

A graduate of South Glens Falls High School, I attended ACC and graduated with a B.S.E. in Physical Education from SUNY Cortland. I received a Master's Degree in Elementary Education from Plattsburgh State University and K-12 Health Education Certification from New York State. I hold SAS and SDA certificates in administration which I pursued through Plattsburgh State University.

This is my 24th year in education, 14 of them teaching, and I believe learning never stops. I strongly support professional growth and often attend seminars, conferences, workshops and read educational material in order to provide our students with the best possible education. I truly enjoy the educational field and am pleased to have the opportunity to provide your child/children with a positive school experience.

My husband is a native of Glens Falls and we have two wonderful children, Rachel Beth (10) and Patrick (8), who keep us very busy!
