Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome back to school! This is my fifth year here at Glenolden, and I really feel like I have become a crucial part to this Glenolden community. I have previously taught English at the 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th grade levels, and I feel that my past has shaped me into the kind of teacher I am today. I have very high expectations for my students, and believe they can achieve more than they know possible. I remind them of this often within my classroom.
I just recently received my Master’s degree in Instructional Media (technology in the classroom). Therefore, you will hear many times throughout the year about the different types of technology that I incorporate into my lessons. I do my best to keep the students interested in lessons, and use many different types of media to make this happen.
I am also a coach (Prendergast Lacrosse), so I know the importance of teamwork very well. My class is run like a team, with all students respecting and embracing each other’s ideas and opinions.
I am very happy to be such a big part of your child’s education. I am enjoying getting to know the students, and their success is my primary goal. I feel this goal can be reached with the hard work and cooperation of all the students, and, of course, you as well. Please know that I am here to help any student at any time he/she needs it. I welcome any information you feel would assist me in helping your child to become a successful student. Please feel free to contact me at any time throughout the school year for questions, concerns, and comments. I look forward to working with each of you.
